Enamelled Poppy Necklace
Enamelled Sterling Silver Poppies Necklace. Hung from a Sterling Silver chain 18" or 20".
Vitreous enamel is glass which is carefully ground into very fine grains using a pestle and mortar. This is washed several times to be rid of any impurities. It's carefully placed on to the metal using tools such as a quill, small brushes or a spatula. Then fired onto metal at temperatures between 750 and 850 °C . The word Vitreous comes from the Latin vitreum, meaning "glass".
Poppy Size 17mm x 17mm.
I originally hand carve and formed in Sterling Silver then cast. Once back from casting. Every single one is then hand filed and finished. No two are ever exactly the same.
During this November 50% of the sale will be donated to The Royal British Legion.
Can be commission in Gold. Please ask for quotes
