The art of enamelling

Enamelling is an art all by itself and it is usually done by hand in a traditional manner by professional enamel artists. Enamelling has been around for thousands of years and magnificent, colourful jewellery is still made via the art of enamelling. So what exactly is enamelling? Enamelling is the melting of powders, consisting of glass and pigments, on different materials, such as silver or gold. This is how, for example, Sterling silver jewellery get their enamel inlay. Due to the transparent, shiny effect, the jewellery literally seems to shine and due to the endless colour possibilities, every piece of enamelled jewellery becomes a wearable work of art.

Art Nouveau

Glass artist René Lalique (1860-1945) has become world famous for his enamelled Art Nouveau jewellery. Staggering amounts of money are offered for jewellery made by him. Based on Lalique and other jewellery artists, Art Deco Web Store has created a very large collection of jewellery with enamel. Butterflies, elves, dragonflies, peacocks, flowers and other elements of nature often have stunning enamel inlay.
