An enameling technique called cloisonné is a cultural treasure that was inherited by Ancient Rus from the Byzantine Empire. The art of enamel became an integral part of another phenomenon, “Russian art metalware,” long ago. As far back as in the XIX century, that ancient technique was already used with success by masters of the Pavel Ovchinnikov and Karl Fabergé jewelry firms, who created original products in the “Russian style”. Today, the art of enamel is seeing a surge of renewed interest, both among jewelers and connoisseurs of beauty. Doing cloisonné enamel in our museum is a rare opportunity to learn the basics of jewelry art and, at the same time, to see the best samples of that technique in our museum collection. Together we will make a fascinating journey of creating jewelry, from a sketch to its implementation in the material. A work that undergoes heat treatment can be a wonderful gift and a memento.
