An ancient art bought back to life

To give each wing its rich colour, the jeweller used vitreous enamel, created by applying heat to four different layers of powdered glass which fuses it with the metal. The goldsmith delicately engraved the metal before applying the enamel to add a life-like texture and multiple shades of blue were blended to create the wings stunning colour gradient.

Enamelling is an ancient art that dates back to the Egyptian and Greek empires. From Tutankhamun’s glittering mask to the finest Russian filigree, enamel has brought colour and wonder to humankind through the ages. Today, the artisans at Catherine Best embrace this enchanting technique to bring Flutter On By to life.
