Contemporary enamel – altered surfaces and sensitive sifting with Jessica Turrell

Ref: SSS08054




Explore the application of enamel on altered metal surfaces to create jewellery. Working in copper with the option of also using silver, begin by investigating methods of patterning and texturing. Then use the sifting technique, which enables the enamel to interact and be altered by the underlying surface. You are encouraged to develop your ideas by experimenting and exploring these processes in depth before making finished items of jewellery.
