Gold Berries with Blue Moon Cloisonné Enamel Pendant by Laura Bracken (Available for Free U.S. Shipping or Local Pick-Up)


This one of a kind pendant was designed and created by local jewelry artist Laura Bracken using the techique of cloisonné in champlevé setting she created from pure silver..

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”  ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Cloisonné is an ancient technique of applying glass to metal. Each piece can take several days to make, starting with the design and ending with the high polish. To create a piece, Laura starts with sheets of pure silver (0.999) to which several layers of enamel (colored, powdered glass) are fused in a 1450 degree kiln. Tiny, pure silver wires are bent into the design and enamel is added into the cells and fired one layer at a time. Most pieces require 15-20 layers of enamel, after which the piece is stoned down, sanded, and polished to a high shine.  This piece also features some 22k gold accents.

The setting is about 1 inch in diameter and was created from fine silver (pur silver). The 18-inch chain is sterling silver.

This item can be picked up at the gallery in Auburn, CA or the artist can ship it to you for free (domestic shipping only). If you've purchased this and want to have it shipped to you, please click here to give your mailing address to the artist.  (LauraBrackenOnline "at" gmail.com)
