My first experience with doing cloisonne; at least, partially. Although I've used wires before, this time I tried to follow the proper steps of laying down a base, then firing with the wires, allowing them to sink into the base. Then I employed wet-packing the enamel into the spaces, a technique I now completely love.

The 2-in. x 3-in. pendant is kiln-fired opaque and transparent enamels on 18-gauge copper, and features a Carnelian bead. It hangs from a 22-in. steel cable strung with Red Jasper and Snowflake Obsidian beads, finished with bronze bail and clasp.
