Serendipity

  • Exhibition: General Exhibition 2024
  • Description of your entry: Cloisonné pendant on copper with sterling silver frame. Wet laid transparent lead free enamels over foil.

    I had some challenges in making this pendant. The surface was curved so some of my wires wouldn’t stick or fire in place. I tried several times even replacing the wire without any luck.

    Those wires had to be fired in place with my first layer of enamel which proved eventful but I’m pleased with the outcome.
