Bring Color to Your Creativity
Enameling is the process of applying a glassy, colored opaque or transparent substance to the surface of metal and heating it to over 1350 degrees until glossy. Enamel is used to add color and dimension to jewelry using many different techniques such as sgraffito, cloisonné, crackle and others.
Enameling Program at Annealed Studio
Our program guides beginning students through a number of projects meant to teach the basic skills. Once you have the basics down, you will continue to add to your skill set and technique by continuing to work with our instructors to create pieces that speak to you. From pendants and earrings to housewares such as light switch covers, the possibilities are endless.
