Ocean enamelled pendant. This shimmering Stirling silver and enamel pendant is inspired by the tranquil blue seas around the coast of Cornwall. It hangs on an 18 ” silver belcher chain.
The intricate process of applying hot vitreous enamel is an ancient art that has been passed on through the centuries. Each piece is hand enamelled with fine glass powder. First of all, each item is prepared and cleaned thoroughly to remove any form of contamination. The glass powder is ground in a mortar mixed with water and then painted into each area, taking care not to allow any overrun. This is then dried and fired in a kiln at 800 degrees Celsius. Sometimes the item is fired twice to achieve the correct colours.
