Cloisonné bead sets in brilliant colors and exquisitely detailed Art Nouveau styling. Traditional cloisonné craftsmanship combines with modern-art designs for a striking focal piece and bead ensemble. The centuries-old technique of cloisonné requires skilled artisans to arrange dozens of tiny cells on a brass surface and, layer by layer, fill in the cells with enamel, then fire to finish. Gold-color edges are a beautiful contrast to the bright artwork found on each lightweight, double-sided bead. Due to the handcrafted nature of the beads, size, shape and colors may vary.
