Welcome to my Enameling Blog of Cloisonné Jewelry Techniques and others such as Plique a Jour, Champlevé Enameling and yes Painting Enamels. My site is a donation of everyone’s time to share and further the education of the fine art of enameling techniques. I am very happy to answer questions to help you, but please ask here and not emailing me directly. At the bottom of this page there is a comment section. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!!
I share my life’s passion and inspiration with anyone who wishes to read. I am a self-taught enamelist and goldsmith. I did not live here in the US where there was a knowledge base and to my advantage, my knowledge came from trial and error and today I continue to build on trial and error.
Read test analyze and you will surely learn.

With many staying home this is a great opportunity for online courses. And from our one of a kind, US Master Enamelist I am proud to feature Merry-Lee Rae.
“My favorite teaching venue is in my own studio where I am able to offer intensive, personalized instruction with 10-12 students for a duration of 5 days. It is a perfect opportunity for those of you wishing to establish strong technical skills whether you are an experienced enamellist or an aspiring beginner.”
Wow! Who would have anticipated that our plans could change so abruptly! But with our nation’s current situation, I am adaptable and my students are so amazing and I wanted a way to keep them engaged and focused as I postponed all of my workshops.
And so Merry-Lee Rae’s Online Classroom was born!
