Round Peg In A Square Hole
2010 - September - Guilloche
This is the 9th piece of this BJP. In addition to the enamel, I have used glass beads, carved bone, copper filigree butterfly, metal beads, sponge coral, misc stone beads, goldstone beads, handmade twisted wire bead and silk ribbon (dyed by me) embroidered flowers.
Round Peg in a Square Hole... - enamel is the Guilloche technique with flower grouping design on 1.5" fine silver domed disk using leaded enamels with gold foil, twisted fine silver wire and fine silver and gold balls. Guilloche is a machine engraving from specialized equipment that is no longer manufactured; Faberge used Guilloche in his eggs and frames, giving them that special brilliance from the engraving.
