Ocean Enamelled Drop earrings
Ocean enamelled drop earrings – These shimmering Stirling silver and enamel earrings, on Stirling silver hooks, are based on the tranquil blue seas around the Cornish coast.
The intricate process of applying hot vitreous enamel is an ancient art that has been passed on through the centuries. Each piece is hand enamelled with fine glass powder. First of all, each item is prepared and cleaned thoroughly to remove any form of contamination. The glass powder is ground in a mortar mixed with water and then painted into each area, taking care not to allow any overrun. This is then dried and fired in a kiln at 800 degrees Celsius. Sometimes the item is fired twice to achieve the correct colours.
