The process of creating
Copper Enameled Jewelry

- copper is cleaned with acid to remove
any oil

-1st firing with base coat of powdered
glass, which if finer than sugar or salt.

-Piece cleaned each time it is removed
from the kiln, as it has ash on the
copper underside (each piece is fired 4
+ times, usually 6 or 7)

-There are multiple layers of base glass
coats and then the designs are made
with glass chunks that melt, liquid glass
that forms designs by crackling, and
painting with an oil based glass paint

-back is cleaned and sprayed with a
lacquer finish, and jewelry findings are
attached

-the process is labor intensive, but the
unique designs are worth it...the artist
has very little control of the design
once it is placed in the kiln...
no two pieces are alike,  as the heat is
the artist once the piece in the kiln
