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.

About ThatENAMELGuy

ThatENAMELGuy

I make 'one of a kind' jewellry and ornaments by manipulating glass enamel over a copper base.

I have been working in enamels for thirty years, learning as I go. I particularly like to use the scrolling technique. This is where I draw through the final layer while the piece is in the kiln, red hot, to stir the colours about and make random patterns. The enamel has the texture of sticky toffee and will start to set as the temperature of the kiln falls while the kiln door is open; consequently my window of opportunity is very narrow but I have no way to predict how narrow. Two further complications, different enamels have subtly different melting points and at red hot all the colours on the piece look the same so even when I can see the work I can't distingush the colours. Essentially I see myself as having an idea of the finished piece but being allowed to achieve only what the kiln and the materials allow me to get away with. Each result is unique. The nearer I get to my idea the happier I am but if I am disappointed I console myself with the knowledge that there is a masterpiece lurking in the kiln if I can only capture it.
