Glass enamels

The course of glass enamels focuses on learning how to decorate jewelry surface with coloured glass coating. The colour is obtained here by mixing quartz (glass), water and metal oxides that give colour. This mixture is applied in specifically pre-prepared nests in the metal sheet resembling stained glass. For this reason, glass enamel technique is called cell enamel. To fix the coloured coating, jewelry piece is fired in a high temperature oven.
