Cloisonne

120px-CloisonneqingThe fine art of using 24k Gold wire or Fine Silver over a base of fine silver is known as the art of Cloisonne. The wires are shaped into a design fused on the base. The enamels, which are powders of fine glass, are cleaned several times then wet packed in the design in many layers. Each layer is fired at high temperature in a kiln resulting in a beautifully transparent and colorful piece.
