Enameling Hotline of Cloisonné & Many Other Enameling Techniques

 

 

Welcome to my blog Enameling Hotline of Cloisonne Jewelry Techniques and others such as Plique a Jour and Champleve Enameling Jewelry Techniques. 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. It saves me time and allows others to share also. Thanks!!

Here 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.

Wrote a beautiful 8-page article about Tom and I with the whole project. And how we donated to the Arts.  You as an artist do not have to take a year behind the bench to donate to the arts but here is a great donation.

Ornament Magazine has been writing about us= artist for 45 years, and you can support the arts by supporting them.

I am sorry to say I will no longer be able to build those awesome enameling kilns. The company that was building for me was sold and is currently not employing kiln builders. They are still available for repairs and parts for those of you that have purchased my kilns.

 I am available here if you need any technical support or parts, please contact me. If I cannot handle your needs I will get you with a tech. patsy@alohilanidesigns.com
