Champlevé is an enameling technique that consists of cutting away the metal to create cells and filling the depressions with vitreous enamel. The raised metal lines between the cutout areas form the design outline. In this collection, I am creating the recessed areas by the process of etching.
All pieces are enamel on etched copper. I used these pieces to play with how to hand the pieces from a chain. Each piece is unique and different, and careful consideration to how they would hang, and move when worn. All pieces are set in hand-fabricated sterling silver settings. All pieces have a diamond pattern etched on the back.
