A stylized peacock feather pin, finely crafted in sterling silver and French enamel, will dress up your silk scarf, coat lapel, or the shoulder of your cashmere sweater!
The feather has been decorated with vibrant French enamel, which has been applied with two different techniques. The "basse taille" process involves the firing of powdered glass over a carved metal motif, while the "champleve" process involves filling channels of metal with the powdered glass, then firing in a kiln. The enamel has been worked in colors of purple, pink and black.
