Shop Announcement:

Welcome to my shop.

All my work is 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 copper only on the edges of the shape or where it has been scraped away allow me to solder a brooch bar.

POSTAGE In the current COVID lockdown I am restricting my shop to items I feel I can send from a post-box. All items are sent by Royal Mail First Class Large Letter. Additional items post free. This is not a tracked service.

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

I made this brooch by building up a base of several layers of clear enamel on a copper disc then adding a single layer of green enamel. The green layer is thin enough to allow the copper to shine through in tones of gold as light strikes the brooch. I then added a large, cuboid, millefiore bead andfired it over the green. This has added a rough circle of yellow, white, red and pale blue tones to the brooch and again these shift in intensity under the light.
The disc is counter-enamelled.
The length of firing required for the bead has meant that in places the green enamel has dreawn back from the edge of the disc leaving a baked rim equivalent to the counter enamelling.
The disc is counter-enamelled.
I have soldered the copper disc to a 26mm brooch bar. The pin secures with a rotating catch.
Your brooch will be sent in a soft cloth drawstring bag.
Delivery will be by Royal Mail, first class, signed for.

Inspiration

I have obtained some large millefiore beads and am planning to use them to produce some large, statement jewellery.This is the first brooch; there is a large blue pendant too.
