These earrings are made using the ancient technique of enameling. Enameling is considered the most intricate and difficult of all jewelry techniques, the process of fusing glass to metal can be dated as far back as the Hellenistic Period (323 B.C. to 31 B.C.). Vitreous enamels start as powder made of finely ground glass mixed with mineral pigments. To reach the desired depth and clarity of color the piece needs to be fired in a kiln many times between 1,380F and 1,560F.
Here, vitreous enamel is applied to sterling silver. Gold stripes are hand cut out from 24K gold foil and fused to the enamel. A special enameling firing technique was employed to add texture to the surface.
The Sterling Silver findings are lightly oxidized to better play with the design.
These earrings are one of a kind and can not be reproduced, however very similar will be made. Inquiries are welcome at email@example.com
