This workshop will explore the luminous, exciting technique of plique a jour, and setting CZ’s or diamonds into the work. Students will construct a framework of fine silver and enamel the openings, resulting in a stained-glass effect. Fired without a backing, only surface tension holds the molten glass in place while in the furnace. After enameling, small faceted stones will be tube set into the project.
The workshop will cover fabricating the framework, applying the enamel, successful firing, and methods for finishing the work. Beginners gain an introduction to an exciting medium, and more experienced students will deepen their understanding.
