Pickleball Paddle and Ball Necklace (Cherry Blossom)
Great necklace for you Pickleball fans. This handmade cloisonné one of a kind Pickleball necklace will be the envy of all your friends. The paddle measures 1 ¾ inches and has a sterling silver Pickleball attached next to the paddle on a chain that measures approximately 18 inches. I am happy to make adjustments to the chain length if needed.
The technique that I use is called Cloisonné Enamel. Each piece of jewelry is created using fine silver, sterling silver, and fine ground glass powder. The glass powder is applied to the fine silver with a tiny paintbrush. Each layer of glass is then heated in a kiln to melt the glass powder and have it become one with the silver that is behind it, this is done multiple times. While the frames for each piece may look similar, the glass enamel artwork within every piece is unique just like their collector.
