22mm [3/4 inch] Shades of blue with a hint of yellow and reddish copper. Handcrafted sterling ear wires and accented with lapis lazuli cubed beads.
Vitreous enamel is composed of finely ground glass powder that I sift over hand cut natural copper shapes. This is then carefully heated with a plumbers torch or small kiln to reach1500 degrees. At that temperature, the powdered glass liquifies, spreads and forms a beautiful glass surface. For the cells or crackle techniques it spreads, pools and collects in cells, forming a distinct pattern. The pieces are then allowed to slow cool for several hours after which time the glass is permanently adhered to the metal underneath.
