‘4 Seasons’ ~ Cloisonné enamel necklace
Spring, summer, autumn and winter are depicted in this beautiful cloisonné enamel necklace.
The chain is comprised of handmade sterling silver links that have been riveted together, ensuring that the piece sits beautifully of the wearer’s neck.
I have includes an image of the unset enamel.
Enameling is a very labour intensive process. The transparent enamels in this necklace were applied and fired between 20-30 times. Building up colours slowly and carefully is what makes cloisonné enamel jewellery shimmer.
