'70s Cloisekins Enamel Turtle Necklace

Sold Out

The absolute cutest lil necklace that ever was! Vintage 1970s Cloisekins by Cloisart enamel turtle necklace in the best 70s hues of yellow, copper, rust, brown, and light green. Even comes with the lil paper pamphlet about the necklace! 

This one's hard for us to let go, cause he's just SO cute!

The pamphlet describes this necklace and the process of handmaking the piece:  "...tenderly colored from a fresh palette, created exclusively for Cloisart by Wayne Spooner. Wayne Spooner, one of the most talented staff designers, an accomplished artist in several media before turning to cloisonne enamel design, has rare versatility - apparent in the delightful delineation of these charming pendants."

"....Refreshing and amusing as they are, each pendant is the consummate product of ancient art of cloissone enameling, in which each step is done by hand by a dedicated artisan. Color pigments (a vitreous substance mixed with ground glass) are applied by hand to a metal surface on which metal cloisons have been formed to separate the colors. After each of the many applications, the color is fused by baking. It is then painstakingly polished and finished. Your Cloisekin pendanat is a work of art. With normal care, you will enjoy it for years to come."
