WINGS FARM PROJECT
In this page I will continue promoting Silver for jewelry making , because it is a beautiful metal that can be converted into objects of great beauty, allowing the use of enamel in all colors and combinations fantasy allows , its bright white color being like a white paper ready to paint on it . The limits are the talent and fantasy .
Also , Silver is a cheap material in comparing with gold and the value will be the craft , not the weight .
The theme I have chosen is the wings of insects, especially butterflies, because it is a diversity that allows unlimited combinations of colors.
Butterflies – like flowers – are the best example of nature’s limitless imagination when it comes to colors.
There will be butterflies, dragonflies , birds and flowers , and other various types of animals that have colors worthy of being reproduced in a jewelry item , and I’ll also try a few nature images in which poetry and feelings can be revealed .
There will be pendants, brooches, necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings, and maybe a few other accessories . All of them being manufactured specifically for enamelling and will be exclusively unique, being crafted by hand .
The fabrication of such an object can take in between one to three days or a week. For a single object, as I said.
Enameling is a very complicated and painstaking process and can not be reduced or simplified.
I’ll use the “Plique a Jour” and “Cloissone” techiques , with open fire , I don’t have a propper kiln to allow the perfect temperature control these techiques require .
If you’ll have the patience, you can track objects unique manufacturing processes that will expose for sale at a new site called “WINGS FARM”.
There anyone can ask me for a one of a kind item , especially designed for them .
FINALLY I GOT A KILN FOR MYSELF , IT IS BRAND NEW AND IT IS A JEWEL BY ITSELF .
THE BLUE MONARCH IS MADE USING THE KILN :
