Every piece of my jewellery is entirely handmade in lreland, in our workshop, Kerry Way Studio.
This blue, ornamental pendant is made with fine silver and decorated with vitreous enamel called Minankari.
It is hanged on 3 strands of leather cord, finished with sterling silver lobster
The Minankari, also known as Cloisonné or Vitreous Enamel is an intricate and laborious, ancient jewellers technique.
The enamel becomes the final artwork after several firing operations in a special kiln and then, time-consuming polishing, demanding high level of an expertise.
The finished piece is unique and it is almost impossible to find two identical ornaments.
