Jewels - unset

The following jewels are ready to be set into any type of piece; use like any stone cabochon. If you don't see one in the colors or theme you want, just email me to discuss a custom piece. Most of these jewels are enameled, but some are various types of metal work; a variety of enameling techniques are employed.

I also have Doll Faces for use by any doll maker.

I'm happy to sell to other artists to use in their own work. This is like buying a cabochon or glass jewel from another artist. Custom work accepted.

NOTE: the jewels are all normalized to fit into the space so look at the size described to understand the actual size. That is, don't compare one jewel to another in terms of viewing their size.

High Fired Enameled Jewels

This is a new technique as written up in my enameling book, The Art of Fine Enameling Second Edition. This technique is fun to do and doesn't require too many firings, making them less expensive than other enameling techniques. I first show a jewel that I beaded up. Hope this will inspire you.

This jewel was $45 and included fine silver twisted wire and balls and dichroic frit flakes and enamel chips.
