Shining with hues of green and blue in a textured silver setting, this enameled jewel is strapped on a bracelet of green leather cords. Echoing the enamel's setting, textured bands of sterling silver add decorative accents. The handmade clasp keeps it all securely in place. The bracelet is 7.25" long while the enamel is 1.25" X 1" , an average length.
Enamel Jewel bracelet
The enamel center is made by fusing many separate layers of vitreous enamel (a finely ground, colored glass) onto a copper shape at a high temperature. The blue and green grass-like pattern is transparent enamel over fine silver foil. I then added squares of silver foil in the last firing, which completed my many hours of work!
