I have decided to begin making a series titled “chasing the sun” and here is a pair of earrings from this series! ☀
I’ve made the “Chasing the sun earrings1” using vitreous enamel and sterling silver . Enamelling is done over copper blank . First, I made the blank and counter-enamelled it. The enamel coat on the pieces’ back and surface is the result of applying several layers of enamel grains. I have bended and shaped the silver wires, and fused them on the basecoat enamel on the blank. Then, I start filling the created cells using enamel coats. After applying each layer, I fire the pieces in my kiln at around 785 degrees celsius. This is a technique called “cloisonne”.
And then, I set the enamel in silver and hung fluorite beads✔ Please note that fluorite is a soft stone.
The width of the studs is about 2cm.
