Cloisonné Enamel fine silver blue green Mosaic pendant. Handmade enameled jewelry by Arctida.

I've been wanting to try enameling for a some time now and so when the opportunity arose I had to take it! I've chosen Cloisonné enamel technique for my first pendant but more pieces with other  enamel techniques are on the way :)

Cloisonné is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects by fusing glass onto metal. It is a very specific and time consuming process but the end result can be spectacular and the colors will not fade because the material is glass.

For this piece I first made a patterned fine silver pendant, added fine silver cells (cloisons in French), filled them with different shades of blue greens enamels, made a number of successive firings to establish color control and hand polished the pendant to a glossy finish.
