Enamel occurred in the background. Since some years it reappears into contemporary jewellery art and we should celebrate it!
In the middle of the 20th century enamel has been sliding into the field for hobby craftsperson.
Adult education classes have been offered to the general public. The new combination of genuine enamel art and a pretense of mastery in this field caused many people to distance themselves from enamel, especially among young artists.

I love the technique; to apply a fine crushed glass powder to copper (silver or gold) and to see how it burned in the kiln.  It is a great possibility to add colours to a piece (of jewellery). Enameling is like experimenting because you got often surprises when you open the kiln, accept that gift and enlarge your perception. Different techniques like powdering, painting and drawing with enamel will be shown in several steps.
