Isn't this heart charm just the most delightful piece? It's adorned with beautifully hand-painted enamel California Poppies and crafted from recycled 18k gold. I personally milled all the gold myself, and let me tell you, the luscious buttery yellow hue of 18k is simply fantastic! This charm is truly a very special piece.
- Measurements: 1/2" x 9/16"
- Materials: recycled .925 Sterling Silver, and vitreous enamel
- Handmade in Florida in my home studio
Vitreous enamel, has been used for centuries and was notably employed by ancient Egyptians as far back as 1500 BCE to adorn jewelry. Its enduring popularity lies in its vibrant colors and durability, making it a timeless art form that has stood the test of time.
Care for your Enamel Jewelry:
I have chosen high-quality materials to create a piece of artful jewelry that will last a lifetime. Even though they will be so comfortable, you might forget they are there, try not to bathe or swim with them. Moisture from the water will cause your silver to darken very quickly, especially chlorine. Next, put on perfume or body spray before your jewelry, and lastly, I recommend removing it before using cleaning products. Many will cause silver to darken from the fumes, and some can even hurt your enamel, so to be careful, I always recommend removing all jewelry.
