Welcome to my Handmade Jewellery Page.
The jewellery starts with making many sketches of shapes for earrings, pendants or bracelets. Next some prototypes are assembled. At this stage decisions are made about colour, texture, use of gemstones and metal components.
The handmade process starts with drawing the shapes, cutting metal, shaping and hammering the pieces of metal. The next step is a process called Enamelling and both sides of the metal are enamelled. Coloured powdered glass is carefully placed onto the metal and set in a very hot kiln several times to fuse the glass onto the hand shaped pieces of copper. These process of enamelling is repeated several times until the desire effect is achieved.
If you love colour our enamelling comes in many beautiful colours.
The Bracelets are available in the opaque enamel colours of Yellow, Aqua Blue, Willow Green, Red and transparent Copper Green. The size is adjustable to the wrist. The gemstones that you will find in the bracelets are lapis, carnelian, or malachite. The metal components are Bronze or Silver(sterling). To purchase a bracelet please click on store.
