Elegant brooch - pendant moth, made of 925 and 999 silver and crystalline ceramics *. The openwork cut from silver I filled with glass enamel * in shades of blue. Above the moth I put a porcelain element with an amazing pattern like an ice crystal. I hung the pendant on a snake chain, finished with a clasp and adjustment with my logo.
The chain has an additional clasp that allows you to detach the adjustment and remove the pendant from the snake chain. Then you can wear the moth as a brooch, it is best for not too thick fabrics.

Heavenly colors and glass-like feel can be really mesmerising. It is a phenomenon known since antiquity as enamels were used as far back as thousands years ago and their usage was perfected when Art Nouveau style bloomed. Nowadays not many jewelers take up the challenge of incorporating enamels into their works but this technique is definitely worth the hours that must be put into it. It also needs extreme precision in every step of the work and lots of knowledge.
The process of creating
I use pure silver which I cover with many layers of powdered glass which I then fire in a red-hot kiln. I impatiently observe my work through a little window in the kiln’s door to ensure whether the powder already transformed into smooth glass. If it did, I quickly take the piece out so that my work is not ruined. This whole process has to be repeated numerous times and when this stage is over it is time to start grinding and polishing. Those are only a few major steps in the creation of the piece of jewelry that you just received. You can now enjoy being the owner of this intricate and unique piece of art.
Mixture of fine French porcelain with the passion for chemical experiments. This is a short definition of my husband’s handicraft, who creates incredible works of art in his workshop Crystalline Obsession by Kuba Kalinowski. He uses crystalline glazes and the technique he’s working in is extremely rare and each time it gives different results.
Unpredictable creation process
If you fire the porcelain in a proper way, the crystalline glazes change into structures resembling frost drawings on windows. It is not possible to predict where will the crystals form, it is a totally random process so the objects created this way are always unique and unrepeatable. Such beautiful forms were a huge inspiration for me so I decided to use ceramics in my jewelry. I encased the ceramic piece in silver so that you can enjoy it in your jewelry. You can be absolutely sure no one will ever have identical piece to the one that came into your possession.
