A HANDMADE BRAND
These are one of a kind pieces of torch fired enamel, combined with gold plated geometric elements and finished with gold filled ear wires, made by the artist Chelsey Greene in her home studio in San Francisco, California.
Enameling is the process by which glass is fused to the surface of copper, in this case with an open flame, handheld blowtorch. One special technique - sgraffito - is a form of decoration, pattern, design and texture made by scratching through the top enamel to reveal an underlying layer of contrasting color.
Looking to incorporate her degree in textile design, Chelsey's newest collections include micro macramé made of colorful waxed polyester cord and bead work. Some pieces can take up to 5 hours to make. They are durable in UV light and even ocean water, as well as being extremely lightweight for their size and scale.
