Explore in-depth the application of enamel on altered metal surfaces. Working in copper with the option of also using silver, investigate methods of patterning and texturing and use sifting techniques that enable the enamel to interact and be altered by the underlying surface. You are encouraged to experiment using samples before making a simple piece of jewellery.
