WE dig Cloisonne

Cloisonné is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects, in recent centuries using vitreous enamel, and in older periods also inlays of cut gemstones, glass, and other materials. The resulting objects can also be called cloisonné. The decoration is formed by first adding compartments (cloisons in French[1]) to the metal object by soldering or adhering silver or gold wires or thin strips placed on their edges. These remain visible in the finished piece, separating the different compartments of the enamel or inlays, which are often of several colors. Cloisonné enamel objects are worked on with enamel powder made into a paste, which then needs to be fired in a kiln.


Believe it or not.... set your own trends that's what is great about vintage. We still have so much in stock. Everything from a little 40's to some 80's. Mix new with vintage. OH and one more your outfits on our Facebook Fan Page we love to see your style.
