Description

Sterling silver “Harlequin” white sapphire pendant by Nicole Barr. The gray, black and white enameled  pendant is in the shape of a leaf and has 4 white sapphires on one side. The gray, black and white enamel is applied using the  Champlevé technique. Champlevé-A French word for “raised field”, in champlevé the artist removes the silver by cutting, hammering or stamping in order to create a depression which will then receive the melted glass. As the enamel is laid in the recessed areas of the silver, it is built up in layers until it reaches the same height as the remaining silver.  The silver has been rhodium plated to be hypo-allergenic and tarnish free. The sterling silver chain is adjustable to 18″ long.
