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.
These earrings are scrolled bright blue on a dark blue background on copper. I can't pretend that the two match - that would be impossible to achieve (see 'inspiration') - but they come close and anyway, who sees both your ears at the same time?
The drops are 13mm diameter and counter enamelled on the reverse. The wires are silver.
Your earrings will be sent boxed, as shown.
Delivery is by Royal Mail, first class, signed for.
Probably my favourite enamelling technique is scrolling. I draw a steel point through the piece while it is at red hot, in the kiln, to create a a pattern by drawing out the class. Similar techniques are used for feather icing and marbling paper. The enamel starts to cool as soon as the kiln door is opened so the window of opportunity is small; not every enamel colour has the same melting point so there is a big margin of error. At the end of the day I get the pattern the material allows me - so the design is not repeatable; so the pairs don't match. But the effect can be stunning. See what you think.
