Hand-made unique, intriguing and colourful kiln-fired enamelled pendants and earrings, teamed with sterling silver chains and earring wires

I make my enamelled jewellery in a small but perfectly formed workshop at the end of my husband’s large woodturning workshop in our garden in Halesowen, West Midlands. His beautiful woodturned creations are for sale at very affordable prices here on Folksy at Bluebell Woodturning, https://folksy.com/shops/bluebellwoodturning (shameless plug) and he has started to incorporate some enamelled elements of his own into his woodturning – we are also planning some collaborative working in due course. I fell in love with enamelling on a craft and activity holiday in Devon after only a couple of hours in their workshop and a few initial pieces. I also learned to hula hoop but that’s another story… From school hockey badges and railway signs to the intricate and timeless work of Rene Laliqué and Fabergé, the fusion of glass onto metal has a long history; one of the earliest surviving examples is a set of Mycenaean gold beads made in 1450BC. The industrial revolution led to a new taste for decorative arts and crafts and thus a rise in the use of enamelling for jewellery and decorative items for the home. I am proud to be part of this long tradition and hope to please with intriguing colours, depth and design. I use lead-free enamel powders melted in a kiln onto pure copper, and all the findings are sterling silver (except for magnets). Each pendant comes complete with a soldered jump ring and on an 18” silver rope chain. Should you wish to buy the pendant alone and add your own chain, I can reduce the price by £3 (just about the current cost price of the chain) – note that the jump ring is 6mm when deciding if your chain will fit through it but also allow for the space taken by the pendant. Alternatively, if you buy one pendant complete with chain, you may want to buy subsequent ones without so you can swap them around (and you then know they will fit). Earrings are set on sterling silver wires with a simple shape. I buy my sterling silver from a Birmingham bullion dealer.
