First of Two types of faux enameling

I can't sleep so I Blog. I want to show some of my faux enamel pieces. First I want to say how much I love the look of true enamel jewelry. From cloisonné to the more resent enameled beads done by artisans such as Painting with fire art wear. I wish I had the income to afford such lovely luxuries. But out of necessity comes invention. I desire metal floral elements with pops of color that usually only enameling can achieve. But I have found away, I believe delivers the color and shiny look of glass enamel on copper without the need of torch or kiln. I have taken what is originally designed for scrap booking and made them into jewelry findings.  With the leaves I try to mimic the look of vintage copper when it turns all blue and green. The flowers I wanted vivid colors but not so much that you can't tell their is metal underneath. What do you think?  Want to know how? With enough response I will be happy to make up a free tutorial on how it's done.


  1. Yes, I love enamel, too, but not sure I have the time or money to try to learn yet another thing. But I love metal and would love to know how to do this. Your's turned out great.

  2. I would love to know how you achieve this look. It is just beautiful!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous, love the depth of the colors. I'm interested.
