CRAFTED JEWELRY WITH ENAMEL
My Jewelry is Art to Wear, using Ancient Techniques and Moder Designs
Collecion on Sterling Silver and Copper
After years working with enamels I had the idea to work on pieces of 3D, so the enamels can stand up and being admired by both sides.
I love the undersea life, so I decided start my coleccion with 3D fishes , some they have two sides, so I have to make two exacly pieces and then saw them together. Other pieces are only one side.
They have a base of wood, some a natural wood, without any treatment to give a rustic finish. They are small since the entire piece has to be in the kiln to fire at 1500 F degrees, and the chamber is small. The pieces are hold on the wood with a metal pole o the same cooper is made the figure.
Enamel is aplied on each piece and fired. The enamel has to be in leyers and each one fired independent, to obtain the diferent color and design desired. A piece is fired from 5 to 15 times depending on the finished product.
The metal with the enamel covering all the piece is placed in the kiln to be fired for a few minutes.
The enamel is fussed on the metal at 1500 degrees F. several times, depending on the complexity of the piece.
Urban moments, from today's life. I began creating sketches in ink and watercolor when she meet the Urban Sketchers group from Orlando in 2020.
I feel more free with this fast drawing medium and being outdoors.
Historical buildings have a story to tell, which I try to capture in my drawings and watercolors.
Here in Miami Beach, Art Deco buildings are iconic and each one influences the life of their visitors and the story of this town through the years.
Now my travels through Europe are to join other Urban Sketchers, and visit new countries with a pen and book, to crate traveler's books.
