I am a craftsperson currently producing landscape paintings and
I hope to start making my own jewellery soon.
Enamel jewellery, particularly Arts and Crafts jewellery in
silver with gemstones is something which I think is particulary
attractive and this is what I intend to specialise in.
Not having much money, I was recently lucky enough to purchase a
second hand kiln from the early seventies. Unfortunately it has
no manual and so I would be very grateful for help on how to
track one down. It is a Horst Uhlig KG Type ST2 220V max 3000W.
If anyone has an extremely similar kiln of a different make and
can tell me what setting one uses for enamelling copper and
silver and how long one leaves pieces in the kiln I would be
extremely grateful. Also if anyone knows whether manufacture of
the kiln has been taken over by a differeent company or whether
Horst Uhlig is still going that would be a great help.
In return I could perhaps help with valuing jewellery,
particularly English jewellery because I have quite a few books
on the subject although valuing things from descriptions is
