Event Description

Metalsmithing for Enamels with James Carter

April 16-17, 2011 from 9 am - 5 pm $349 + $35 kit

Enamel gems require special care when setting into jewelry. Once fired, enamels are delicate and heat sensitive, and therefore require special techniques for mounting into jewelry. Learn professional techniques to showcase your enamels in silver and gold. Instruction covers beginning and advanced cold connections to trap enamels, as well as using bezels and creating 3-dimensional forms for beads. Explore creative ways to fabricate metal elements in order to showcase and enhance your enamel work.

Prerequisite: Fabrication 1 or experience.

James Carter will also teach Cloisonne Enameling, April 18-22, 2011.


James Carter is a master goldsmith who specializes in cloisonne enameling. Retired after 30 years of making and selling his own work, James is the recipient of an Artist Fellowship from the Florida State Council of the Arts and three Awards of Excellence from the American Craft Council. James has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a Master of Fine Arts degree. He lives and works in Pensacola, Florida.
