How Cloisonné Enamel is Made
Cloisonné is an ancient art form that has been used to make jewelry for thousands of years. Every artist uses slightly different techniques when making an enamel piece. This is a little bit about how I make mine.
All of my Cloisonné enamel pieces are torch fired and based off a hand drawn designs.
I replicate each line of my drawn design by bending fine silver wire by hand and with tweezers. After the wires are bent to match my drawing. I create the base by hand sawing out two layers of silver. I saw out the middle on one side and fuse the silver layers together to create a frame for the glass to lay in. Next I solder on a bail.
