HOW OUR JEWELS ARE MADE

Esmaltado a fuego

Fire enamel is an ancient technique that is applied in jewelry, and is usually on precious metals such as silver or gold, where it acquires its greatest virtuosity.
A glass of many warm and that has been ground very, very fine is the starting point for enamel work on fire. After being carefully washed to prevent impurities from grinding, it is applied mixed with distilled water, then making different layers on the metal, depending on the design, so that it can melt into temperatures ranging from 750oC to 880oC, depending on the color of the glass being worked.

The Romans and the Greeks already knew and used, in their jewellery, these techniques of work that reached their maximum splendor during the Middle Ages, highlighting the enamels of Limoges, in France, and those of the school of Silos in Spain

Enamel is the fusion of powdered glass mixed with different chemical elements to provide the desired color, made especially for metals. The glass can be applied using various techniques, for all methods heat is used to melt this glass powder and that this vuleva to crystallize.

Enamel is the ancient art of creating beautiful images with finely crushed and sifted vitreous materials, often the enameler applies powder enamel clumped with distilled water on the surface of the jewel in a previously plotted design, creating wonders, miniature artwork. Although the earliest known enamels were created in Ancient Egypt 81500 a.C.) the art of painting has continued to be practiced for centuries to this day.

Over time the art of enamel has evolved with changes in technologies, history and fashion. Two of the most beautiful enamel techniques are: "Pliqué a Jour" and Champlevé", techniques used in the design and creation of the "Ayurveda Inspiration" Collection of our signature Select Jewels by Alohanatura.

Champlevé

Champlevé is an enamel technique used in decorative arts, or an object produced using that process, in which cells are carved, engraved, beaten or produced during casting on the surface of a metal object, the cells are then filled with vitreous enamel.

Champlevé is a technique of enamelling in the decorative arts, or an object made by this process in which the channels are carved, engraved or molded on the surface of a metal object, and filled with vitreous enamel.

It was first used in Celtic art for geometric designs. In Romanesque art, its potential was made the most of, decorating plates and vessels, in Limoges enamel and in other centers.

Pliqué-a-jour

The technique of "fenestrado", "plique-a-jour" in French, means "Daylight", or also called "stained glass" for its aesthetic resemblance to stained glass windows, is considered the most complex technique of enamel in jewelry: the enamel is suspended in the alveoli or hollow thanks to the surface tension of the distilled water containing the enamel, lacking this base or metal bottom that holds it , and must be placed very dry in the oven to cook at 780-800oC in a few minutes.

It is an enamel technique that allows the enamel to be placed giving the appearance of a stained glass window, i.e. a transparency that lets in the light.

Its main quality and the characteristic that makes it so precious is that it lets light pass through the enamels, creating a really beautiful and surprising effect.

The realization of this type of pieces is slower than other works, so the value of these pieces lies in the high technical quality of the craftsman.

This type of enamel is characteristic of Modernism and its main exponent is found in René Lalique.
