The story of the Little Prince was the inspiration for this pendant in an unusual half dome shape. On one side I placed the boy's beloved rose, whose head is covered with shiny red resin.
I treated the recess on the reverse as a window to the world from the book. The Little Prince and the fox are looking at the desert and the night sky, a lamb climbed the dune-scarf, and the moon is shining above him, which hides gold petals under a layer of sludgy enamel.
I covered the surface of the pendant with oxidation which gave it a steel grey shade bringing out the nuances of the silver layers.

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.
