[751] Cloisonne Beads of Fine Silver
I have been making my cloisonne beads since 1996 in a variety of methods with fine silver and wires of fine silver or 24K gold for the designs. My method of fusing two domed halves of fine silver requires fewer metalsmithing skills than the other methods I use, which is why I have chosen to explain this one. Although I currently create my beads the way I describe here, the door is always open for experimentation.... (2004)

[330] Cloisonne Cup
Who has not dreamt of that nobly shaped chalice, enameled all over with immaculate transparents... maybe just one fine gold line winding around its outside... so elegantly understated, so utterly simple... That is poetry. It would neither work nor last. A chalice has to withstand very hard use, and maybe even abuse. It must be carefully planned. That is why I have made this cup a teaching example.

[889] Cloisonne Jewelry with 24k Wires
Merry-Lee Rae has been making jewelry since 1966 when she joined her father in the garage while he dabbled in metal arts.

She feels privileged to have the support of her extraordinary family. She sees herself as a dedicated romantic. Her awards and achievements, the shows, the galleries, the private collections, and the lack of training are not as important to her as the people who arc touched by her work..... (2004)

[919] Cloisonne on Steel
When Joseph Trippetti returned from the Army in 1946, he studied for three years at Philadelphia College of Art and the fourth year at Sheffield College of Arts and Crafts in England, where he majored in silversmithing. He has been enameling since the 1950s. For some years he taught enameling and painting before concentrating on commissions and gallery exhibitions. The medieval tapestries still influence his designs. His cloisonnes were on domed copper plaques before he turned to large steel tiles. (2004)

[209] Cloisonne Primer - History of cloisonne technique
In the late 20s, a small enamel tray, made in China, introduced us to the word cloisonne. The material looked like the granite ware in our kitchen. Obviously the wires were used to keep the colors separated. Then, cloisonne was enamel with wires separating the colors. Simplicity, pure and simple. This is where the majority of the general public leaves the subject, little knowing or caring about its rich history.... (1995)
