[Wanted] Experienced enamelists


#1

I am starting a womens jewelry company out of Newport/Laguna Beach,
Ca and need the services of very experienced enamelists for a
high-end line of pieces. Must be familiar with cold-enameling, as
this is the only technique that can be used on my jewelry. Please
contact Adam Albonni if you are interested and I will supply pictures
for a better understanding of what is required for this position.
Thank you. Cell: 714.724.3384 or Adam_albonni@yahoo.com

Adam,

Cold enamel is not enamel it is an epoxy resin such as colorit. Most
of the enamelists on this board deal in “real” enamel or powdered
glass that is baked on to the piece in a kiln. Have you tried to use
real enamel on your pieces and why can’t you?

Don’t mean to offend, but is “cold enameling” really enameling? Does
it turn into glass?

Amery, “cold enameling,” refers to using a resin or epoxy. These are
not vitreous (glass). The term “cold enameling,” is very misleading.
There is nothing wrong with using resin or epoxy, but they should not
be referred to as “enamels.” It is really a misrepresentation.

Adam…cold enameling is called resin, not enamel? It really hurts
all of us vitreous enamelers when folks mis-identify enameling, which
is a lot more complicated and durable than resin.

Thx. P.S. If you’re interested in enameling, check out my website…
