Sometimes silver just isn’t enough. Enter the varied and intriguing ways color can be introduced into jewelry designs. In the midst of holiday shopping, baking, decorating and all things celebratory, students showed up to learn about the mysteries of using liquid enamel.

I say “mysteries” because it has been a challenge figuring out the idiosyncrasies of this interesting material. I have contacted people across the pond, in the country, and even tried channeling enamelists on the other side to discover how to work with it. Uh, wrong – flush set stones was a real match. Liquid enamel isn’t that difficult to work with but finding out how to do it was a challenge!

I have not encountered any other technique with so many different approaches to working with it.

Above and below you will see samples that students made in class (several people left early before I could get a shot of their work). Please forgive me for the quality of the images of their work – took the shots in a jiffy. Some of my samples are below.

BTW, students, thank you for cleaning up the studio so well – I was amazed how little I had to do after you left!

  1. The class was simply amazing. In just 2 days, I learned so much about liquid enamel- a technique that is not nearly as popular as cloisonne or plique a jour. Thank you for sharing!
