Cloisonné 3-Piece Component and Bead Sets
(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's favorite beading and jewelry supply company, exclusively introduces new cloisonné 3-piece sets in brilliant colors and contemporary Art Nouveau styles. Sets include one large focal component and two matching accent beads.
The cloisonné components are surprisingly lightweight despite their hearty appearance. Cloisonné is a centuries-old technique that requires skilled artisans to arrange dozens of tiny cells on a brass surface and, layer by layer, fill-in the cells with a durable colored enamel, then fire to finish. Gold-color edges are a beautiful contrast to the bright artwork found on each double-sided component.
