All my jewelry is handmade by me in my Northern California studio.
Enamels are melted glass. To create this one of a kind pendant, I first fabricated the silver base out of fine silver. The lines of the design are actually fine silver wires that I meticulously bent by hand and using tweezers into the shapes you see. I place tiny granules of ground up glass which is called enamel in between the wires and melt in the kiln. There are as many layers of glass in each individual piece! once I've added all the layers of glass, I grind and polish to a very high shine.
