In French, plique à jour translates to "letting in daylight." I created the fine silver leaf by carving eco friendly metal silver clay. Once fired and polished, I fill the open cells with translucent powdered glass (enamel) then fire the piece in the kiln. This creates a beautiful stained glass effect. This pendant glow with the sunlight creating a unique piece of wearable art.
This pendant comes with a sterling silver beaded 20" inch chain. I also include a pro polishing pad so that you can keep all of your silver jewelry tarnish-free and bright!
This piece was made in my studio in Redwood City, California.
