Hi, seeking an experienced artist who works in translucent enamels in the Greater Philadelphia area…the first project is a plique a jour application for a finely hand pierced piece in sterling silver…there will be others! This artist must be able to achieve a translucent enamel hue that matches or is extremely similar to a color sample provided…much appreciate your seasoned referrals. Thanks, Kathleen
Ah I so love enamels and enameling. Have big fun with your design projects.
Plique a jour and most all vitreous enamels are best done on Fine Silver or Continuum Silver not Sterling. You may want to bump up your prices to reflect the higher cost of the fine silver.
Have fun and make lots of jewelry.
One of my all-time favorite enamelists was from Philly: Barbara Mail. She was a master of translucents. If she is still there, you can’t go wrong. Give her my warmest regards!

Appreciate the information and I will certainly seek her out!
There is a woman in Bucks County who does amazing work. Her name is Lara Ginzburg
and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best, Susan
You are very welcome. I hope it works out for you.
