I’ve made the sun and tree pendant mainly 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”.
After finishing the enamelling, I set the piece in sterling silver as the pendant. The sun and tree is a minimal piece with a unique colour combination.
The diameter of the enamel is 2.3 cm and the height of pendant from bail to the stone is 6.5 cm
The chain necklace is sterling silver and is about 50 cm.
