What is a Myth but a widely held false belief?
In the beautiful world of enamelling, vitreous enamels are used purely decorative to add colour and visual interest to a plain piece of metal. The ritual of fusing the enamels is painstakingly precise, almost regimented. In this perfect world, the widely held belief that fusing enamels on a movable base like chain cannot be done, is simply a myth! Stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved with enamel as a medium has brought about a revolutionary way of creating with enamel. Applying the enamel freely but purposefully, allows the material not only to decorate a piece, but to be instrumental in its creation, its appearance and its function.
