Silver enameled Cloisonné & Champlevé pendants
Example of Champlevé
Cloisonné is an ancient metalworking technique using silver/gold wire, attaching it to metal & firing glass enamel into separate compartments. Silver foil is a technique involving hand-punched or cut silver/gold foil layered & fired under glass enamel.
Champlevé is an enameling technique in the decorative arts, or an object made by that process, in which troughs or cells are carved, etched, die struck, or cast into the surface of a metal object, and filled with vitreous enamel. The piece is then fired until the enamel fuses, and when cooled the surface of the object is polished. The uncarved portions of the original surface remain visible as a frame for the enamel designs; typically they are gilded in medieval work.
