copper, vitreous enamel, sterling silver

In these earrings the copper form was sawed out, drilled, and formed. Then vitreous enamel was applied, first a coat of counter enamel then fired. Then a white painting enamel where the markings of the leaf pattern are scribed in. Then fired in a kiln, More layers of color are added and fired until the final appearance of these earrings.

The arts of enamelling and jewellery making have engaged Peggy for over thirty years. She has explored many themes, processes, and materials that have allowed her imagination to play. An example of this is in her fascination for seeds where she casts seed forms in silver and then incorporating these forms with precious pearls to create original pieces of jewellery. At other times it is the pure geometry of the construction materials used. Sheet silver, wire, pearls and stones can create a design exploration for a piece of work. Enamelling glass to metal is much like painting in the choices of color and the layering process through multiple firings to create a piece of art. It is always a joy to see an idea come to completion opening the door to another idea.
