One-of-a-Kind Plique-a-Jour Enameled Earrings
Plique-à-jour (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enamelling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It is in effect a miniature version of stained-glass and is considered very challenging technically: with a high failure rate.
These one-of-a-kind earrings took two months time to create.
They are 3.5 inches long.
