It’s the holiday season and everyone is looking for unique gifts.
So, is there a better gift then an original and hand-made piece of jewellery?
When it comes to originality and creativity, Jewel Envy goldsmiths have lots to offer.
Here is a sneak-peek of some of our pieces:
I have found one of the most challenging parts of enamelling is figuring out how to rig the piece for firing. These pieces are very tiny (7mm and less) so they would not balance on any of the trivets we have. I also tried a material called TFS thin firing sheet that is not supposed to stick to enamel but has not worked for me.
Enamelling of the concave surface was easy enough, but the subsequent enamel on the convex surface was a problem.
|As shown above, the convex surface is marred by depressions made by the material is was balancing on during firing.
|Using fine binding wire tightly wound around the posts, hanging lines could be created.
|All rigged and in place and ready for firing.
Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the finished pieces. But it worked–really!
Hi my name is Sunny Choi and i just graduated from OCADU this year. My pieces are meaningful, one of a kind and “wearable”. One of my strongest character is the delicate piercing and finding beauty through the details. I am currently in Jewel Envy studio and working my commission pieces. It’s an awesome place to stay in Jewel Envy studio with good environment and great people.
It’s never to soon to start preparing for the holiday season and the studio is busy with everyone working away on new pieces to stock our shelves here at the studio and to send to the galleries that carry our work.
I have recently been uploading the photos for my two latest collections unto my website and I am SO excited to finally have them up! The fall collection is titled “Auburn Notes” and the holiday collection is “Bellissimo”.
Now I can focus my energy on producing more creations for the Jewel Envy Holiday party and my annual Kathryn Rebecca Holiday Trunk Show.
I am looking forward to both events and to celebrating this holiday season!
