Whitney Lassini Handcrafted Sterling Silver Cloisonne Pendant
Cloisonne is an ancient art form in which enamel, glass, or gemstones are separated by strips of flattened wire placed edgeways on a metal backing.
Our friend, and fellow Lowell resident, Whitney Lassini, is a master of making jewelry that requires infinite patience and fantastic small motor skills. Her cloisonne pieces are made with sterling silver wire that separates the various colors of enamel. She has to fire each piece between six and twenty different time. Wearable art, indeed.
The pendant is about 1 1/2 inches tall from the top of the jump ring by 1 3/8 inches wide. It comes complete with an 18 inch sterling chain.
