Plique á Jour Enamel Technique

 


Enameling is our passion, and we'd like to introduce you to the art of Plique à jour Enamel. Nicole Barr uses this difficult technique to produce many of our beautiful exclusive designs.

Plique à jour is the same technique used by the French enamelists Lalique and Feuillâtre in the 1900's. The French term means "glimpse of day" and describes how the light shines through the rich, lustrous enamel color. Each beautiful, delicate piece is translucent -- suspended between silver or gold wires without a backing, creating the effect of a stained glass window.
