This necklace is hand crafted filigree and enamel. Sterling silver wire is hand fashioned with tweezers, then fired in a kiln at approximately 1700 degrees F. to be fused together with silver dust. This creates the body of the piece which then receives enamel color and stones.
The outlined designs are then filled with a very fine ground enamel powder and fired again in the kiln. This turns the enamel into glass with a high gloss finish.
The last step is to set the stones and to apply 24k gold plate.
The work of two or three master artisans is required to complete a single piece.
