This pair of cloisonne earrings are of a Sandhill Crane in a circle with a red background and are teardrop shape. These are the same size as the small pendants I sell. Each earring is 3/4″ wide and 1-1/4″ tall (not including the ear wire which is approximately 3/4″ long). The ear wires are sterling silver. The back of the earring is white enamel.
Cloisonne earrings are hand-made using wire and glass enamel. The wire is bent into the shape of the design, then layers of enamel (powdered glass) are put on the piece and fired in a kiln to melt the glass onto the metal. Each piece has between 10-12 firings in the kiln. The finished earrings are domed and fired to a glossy shine.
