'Garden Impressions' Hand painted Enamel Pendant
Garden Impression' enamel pendant is vibrant, colorful and stunning. You can see the tree up the side of the piece as a muted sun shines down on a dusky garden full of summer flowers. Calming, serene, you can almost smell the flowers wafting their scent across the landscape.
The focal measures 2 1/4" in L and 1 3/4" W. The chain is an !8" Silver half round omega,setting the piece off beautifully.
Hand painting on enamels is very different from normal painting, it takes some skill to get it mastered and a lot of trial and error. This piece came out beautiful and I am very happy with it.
I love working with enamels! Some people say it is a flashback to the sixties. I was too young then to experience that and fell in love with them just recently. All my enamels are kiln fired. This is a process of melting glass onto the metal and it takes a minimum of three to four firings up to 20 firings of each piece to achieve the color layers. Before you even start with that, there is the cutting of the shapes, the sanding of the metal and then the cleaning of the metal, all before you start with to add the color. It is a time intensive process.
