Shop Announcement:

Welcome to my shop of unique, handmade jewellery and ornaments.

I work in glass enamel on a copper base. I buy the copper shapes and then build up and fire the multiple layers of enamel that decorate them. There is always a layer of enamel on the reverse. This balances the tension to which the decorated surface may be subjected as layers are added to it. It also means that generally there is bare copper only on the edges of the shape or where it has been scraped away allow me to solder a brooch bar.

POSTAGE I send all orders by Royal Mail, first-class, signed for. I charge postage at a flat rate and only on the first item of your order.

Where possible I recycle packaging.

I am happy to consider special requests and commissions. Contact me through folksy.

If you experience any difficulty in placing an order please let me know.

Description

This seahorse measures 42mm long by 15mm at its widest. I have mounted it on a 45cm, silver plate, curb chain that fastens with a simple bolt ring.

It is decorated with pale purple and white enamel, scrolled through a layer of dark blue. The dak blue is layered over a base of several layers of clear enamel built up on the copper shape. Under some lights the copper shape shows, dark golden brown, through the dark blue.

Your pendant will be sent boxed, by Royal Mail first class large letter, signed for.

Inspiration

I have decorated this pendant with a scrolled technique. Enamels are particularly adapted to this technique.
After building up a solid base of several layers of either white or clear enamel I add a single layer of coloured enamel. After firing that I add other colours randomly, either by scattering small heaps of enamel powder on the base or by setting sections of enamel rod on it. When the piece reaches red heat in the kiln I draw through the surface with a steel point to disturb the colours and draw them into a pattern. This is not a controlled activity in the sense that the colours move in ways i can predict and arrange; I get what the material allows.
Each pattern is unique.
