HOW AN EFFETTI JEWEL IS CREATED

The creation of each of my jewels begins with a piece of very pure white porcelain clay that model between your fingers with care, passion and delicacy.

About Our Leather

When pigment meets natural clay, black porcelain is born... sublime!

The black coloring takes place with the addition of specific pigments.

Once dry, the porcelain is fired at a temperature of 1260° to achieve vitrification which makes it resistant and translucent.

The finish is deliberately natural, called bone china, to bring out the exceptional satin material.

The jewel is often embellished with fine 24K gold leaf on which I apply a protective product.

It is finally mounted with natural brass

 

Brass is born from the union of copper and zinc. Resistant, malleable, ductile.

Its color evokes a beauty

timeless.
