This brooch is set with an original, one of a kind cloisonné enamel depicting a Viking war ship. The ship has various colored shields hanging on the sides and sails through the night, guided by the Pole star as seen in the background.
Each piece of cloisonne jewelry is individually crafted by Whitney. No two are exactly the same as the colors are always varied and the process of creating the enamel leaves room for much variation.
Cloisonne enamel is created by forming wires and laying them down into fused glass. Layers of colored enamel glass are then packed into the spaces and fired repeatedly until the level of glass reaches the top of the wires. The enamel is then finished, and can be set much like a precious stone. This cloisonne was set into a fabricated brooch made of sterling silver. The back of the pendant has been left open so that the blue enamel on the back can also be seen. The pin on the brooch is stainless steel.
The brooch measures about 2 and 1/4" across.
