  • Champ-levé Enamel on Silver

    Champ-levé is a type of enamel in which the colour is inlaid into a recessed pattern in the metal, giving it a similar look to stained glass or mosaic. Complex, multicoloured patterns can be created using this torch-fired method. Because students will learn to make a piece of jewellery from start to finish, they will learn basic jewellery techniques such as cutting, soldering and polishing, as well as the torch-fired enamel process. This technique is well-suited to the most basic home jewellery studio, as no kilns are required. Suitable for all skill levels, from beginner to advanced.
