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

I have built up several layers of white enamel over the copper shape of the penguin and then, using a stencil to protect the bird's white breast and trunk, I have added a layer of black enamel. Each layer is fired individually at a temperature of around 800 centigrade.

Before firing the black coat I have drawn through it to suggest the bird's eye and bill.

The penguin is 28mm tall and 23mm across the wingtips. I have soldered it to a 20mm brooch bar that fastens with a simple catch.

Your penguin will be sent boxed, as shown, by Royal Mail first class, signed for.
