Plique-jour is a technique used by the French
enamellists Lalique and Feuillatre in the 1900's. The French term means
"glimpse of day".
This difficult technique has been revived by the
craftsman who made this pendant. The enamel is suspended between gold
wires and is fired without any backing so that the light can shine
A plique-a-jour enamel piece requires many
painstaking hours to complete. Patience and humility are the most
important tools for this technique! It's a work of art that needs to be
treated with care like a fine glass sculpture.
