Aqua wave enamel on silver pendant with chain


This type of enamelling is known as "bas taille", whereby a textured surface is enamelled with glass by hand. I drew my inspiration for this pendant from the sea, using a textured hammer and slightly curving the metal to capture the soft lapping of a wave. It hangs from a snake chain as there is a tube set on the reverse.

The process of enamelling involves hand grinding the vitreous enamel powder using a pestle and mortar to refine and wash the glass. Then I carefully lay the glass grains on the silver ensuring even coverage before firing them in the kiln. I chose to blend two colours on this one to capture the way the sea can change and shift in the sunlight.

I post my jewellery in a gift box within a padded envelope.
