I have created a necklace with a vintage cloisonné look to it. I made strips of rolled metal inlaid with polymer clay. I added some painted areas, and finished with several coats of resin in the central section. After I added my final layer, I sanded and buffed the surface to a beautiful even sheen. The chain contains my little handmade beads and some pretty sterling silver ones, as I felt that they echoed the flourish of sterling silver wire that I created to join the sections together.
The necklace is 17.75 inches (45cm) long and is finished with a sterling silver carabiner clasp.
The piece is presented in a sturdy gift box lined with mulberry paper and bearing my logo. I’ll send it promptly by first class Royal Mail.
I wanted to create the look of cloisonné, with a vintage feel to it. Polymer clay is the perfect medium for faux finish techniques such as this one, and means that I can create my own beads for the chain. I chose to make the beads in a colour that reminded me of rose hips. Repeating the coiled motif in my choice of silver beads helps to visually tie all the elements together.
