Cloisonné is an ancient metalworking technique developed centuries ago in China during the Ming dynasty. The craft is a multi-step enamel process used to produce jewelry, vases, and other decorative items. Also called hard enamel, cloisonné lapel pins are true jewelry grade products and are often viewed as collectibles. There simply is no higher quality lapel pin or greater perceived value then cloisonné hard enamel.
These are NOT cheap enamel! These are jewelry quality and of the finest standard:
- Cloisonné style lapel pins are created when you take two bronze die-cut molds, one of the outline of your pin and a second of any cutouts, to create a product rich in style and detail.
- Each color is individually hand-filled with a powdered glass-like substance and fired at 1600 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Before the lapel pins are packaged each lapel pins is individually hand polished to bring out the high luster of the colors. This process also helps the colors to hold fast and prevents them from bleeding or smudging.
- The cloisonné style lapel pin has the highest perceived value of any lapel pin and is rated as jewelry quality.
