Starfish or sea stars as they are now called, have always been sea creatures of endless fascination around the world. Their mysterious bodies appear in just about any color you can imagine. Their texture is also the source of great interest. To pay homage to these beautiful beings, I created a series of one-of-a-kind crackle enamel sea star necklaces with an array of color combinations. The way crackle enamel fires is reminiscent of the sea stars' nubby texture and irregular patterns.
Crackle enamel is an amazing medium that allows the artist to layer multiple colored enamels that will shift and spread in unexpected patterns. Since I never know quite what crackle will do, I can create one-of-a-kind pieces with consistent color stories.
You can be sure your piece will have the same colors as in the photos but will be unique to you.

Note: Enamel is fired glass. It is sturdy but can crack or break if dropped onto a hard surface or crushed under something. Please treat these handmade enamel items with care and they will have a long, happy life. Please note that copper enameled items will form an oxidized layer on the edges. This is normal as the copper edges are exposed to air.
