  • Description of your entry: This necklace represents fragments of magic carpets coming together, infused with memories and stories of people and places visited. It is cloisonne enamel on hand engraved silver. The shapes have been press formed and bezel set after finishing and then strung with lapis lazuli and argentium beads. The main panel measures 60x45 mm. The enamel has been polished using a JoolTool and then diamond paste used with a pendant motor to achieve a beautifully smooth surface. It was originally made as a strung necklace but was later altered to enable the beads to be unhooked and the central section can then be worn on a chain.
