Arran Landscape Pendant

by Sally Kite

  • Category: Jewellery
  • Medium: Artisan Jewellery
  • Dimensions: 4 x 2 cms (1.57 x 0.79 ins)
Handcrafted in Sterling Silver.

An Arran landscape in 'Champlev├®', an enamelling technique in which cells are carved into the surface of the silver and filled with vitreous enamel. The piece is then fired until the enamel fuses, and when cooled the surface of the object is polished. The uncarved portions of the original surface remain visible as a frame for the enamel designs.

The name comes from the French for

aised field, field meaning background, though the technique in practice lowers the area to be enamelled rather than raising the rest of the surface.
