I would like to find an enameler in the New England - New York area
who can help me with this project.
I’m modeling a replica of Baja speed boat as a lapel pin. A long
section along the hull will be recessed to accomodate enameling with
raised lettering (in metal). Is 0.5mm an adequate depth for the
enamel? Because the customer wants a rich purple-blue color, it
might need to be deeper to achieve a good saturation of color. Also,
I was told that 14kt green gold is preferable for enameling work.
The piece will include diamonds. Does the stone setting work and
polishing need to be done before the enameling? Any advice will be
