Look - No Solder!

This is another of the pieces I made for my Craftsman entry to the Guild of Enamellers. The links are made using Art Clay Silver and it is a reversible bracelet enamelled on both sides. The photo above is of the front enamelled with Soyer Mid Blue and Deep Grass Green. One of the great things about using silver clay is that you can make things for enamelling without any solder joints. No more worries about weakening the joins when firing. How great is that? These links are elliptical and were joined with the jump ring connections after they were enamelled on both sides. Here is a picture before enamelling when I was trying out the connections.

And this is the other side of the bracelet enamelled with Soyer Black. A very sort of 60s look I think.


  1. Joy that is a beautiful design - I can see how it would make great box pendants too :)
