Online Workshop: PIERCED PLIQUE-A-JOUR ENAMELING FOR JEWELRY with SARAH LOCH-TEST
December 2 & 9, 2022 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm ET
Meaning “Light of Day,” Plique-a-Jour is a traditional technique of applying transparent enamel without a metal backing. Light passes through the enamel, illuminating its color.
Students will learn the piercing method for Plique-a-Jour using 16 or 18 gauge sheet metal. Important design considerations will be discussed, such as the size and shape of the ‘cells’ and incorporating Plique-a-jour into jewelry pieces. Sarah will demonstrate preparing sterling silver and transparent enamels for Plique-a-jour, layering enamels for various color effects, kiln firing, and finishing methods. Students should have access to and experience with basic metal forming tools and enamel kiln firing.
