Cloisonné Enameling and Jewelry Making is divided into two parts. The first covers everything from designing the wirework for the “cells” or cloisons, making the enameling cup to hold the wires and enamels, and adding and firing the colors, to creating special effect with wire, foil, and decals. Part II provides clear directions for creating handsome setting for pendants, rings, pins, buckles, boxes, and a variety of other decorative items. Over 150 detailed illustrations and photographs illuminate each step of the procedures as well as the glorious finished products. “….the complete book on cloisonné enameling… encyclopedic in scope.” -Jewelers’ Circular-Keystone.
