I don’t know about you, but I do not like to look like everyone else. I am a unique individual and want what I wear to say so. If you ever want to take your enamel jewelry, plique a jour or cloisonné jewelry to the next level do not hesitate to contact me to help. I only create the finest enamel jewelry.
Let me introduce you to an amazing Artist. “I am gocha gurgenidze it has been 15 years since I am working , I started off as hobby but later on it turned out as my profession. Material I work on is pure gold and silver , I do not show my work in galleries only personal orders , a lot of my work is kept in personal collection of patriarch , unfortunately I just started to take pictures of my work recently , obviously I sell them. Everything is handmade. Thanks for appreciating my work”
Wow, wow, wow!!

Announcing “Cloisonné and Beyond” 2016
Many of you have attended my classes in the past and this will be another great one. 5 full days to study enameling with me. As you may know I start my classes with water colors. Just look at the brooch above and notice how the enamels lay on each other, blended perfectly. Water colors translate very well into enameling and is a wonderful way to think through the colors in you mind that will become permeant in enamels. Next we cover enamel theory. I know many do not care how the enamels react to each other. Put them on the metal and fire. You get what you get…and they like the surprise. I find I can be in control of the out come if I know the expansion rates of the enamels I want to use. Also how many time can I fire a color before it burns, or ones that do not need flux. There is a lot to share!
Each student will design their own jewel. I am happy to help in advance of this class, so you can get the most of our time together. So let’s get right to it!
