Enameling is a way to add beautiful – and durable – color to your creations. There are different colors and materials used in enameling, but the enamel itself is typically made of glass crushed to the texture of fine sand, which is then fused to metal in a high-heat kiln. It’s a great way to create vibrant color that lasts.
Enamel can be applied in a number of ways. It can be sifted, painted, inlaid, and more, and further texture and interest can be added if you choose to work the metal through a technique such as etching.
Sifting is one of the most common applications to achieve enameled jewelry. In this case, the enamel is applied by dry sifting the glass particles onto the surface of the metal. Then, the piece is heated, typically in a kiln, until the enamel softens and flows.
