Diane Ringel  Trunk Show

September 14th 2019

Diane began  making jewelry with mixed metals, wire, and beads in 2012 but found her creative passion in 2017  when she discovered copper enameling.  The explosion of color possibilities rejuvenated her passion for jewelry and led to extensive experimenting with enamel combinations and different copper shapes.

Copper enameling is the process of adding powdered glass on metal and heating the layers until molten. Starting with 24 gauge copper sheet and cutting the shapes and add any needed  holes,  the pieces are then tumbled in steel shot to take off any sharp edges. Adding up to seven layers of different colors of glass, torch firing each layer results in the organic, colorful combinations that are her signature style.

All of the enamel components are hand made and torch fired in her Maryland studio.
