James Carter Jewelry

James Carter is a former resident of Florida who now has his studio in North Carolina. He is a talented jewelry artisan who specializes using the ancient technique of Cloisonné to make pendants and necklaces that reflect seaside vignettes like sunsets and fish bones. Cloisonné refers to the process of enameling using wire to separate areas of enamel. Enamel layers are painted within wire cells and fired repeatedly until the desired colors are achieved. A single enamel piece may require from four to twenty layers or more. James makes his pieces using a silver palladium alloy and 24Kt gold wire. The frames are cut and soldered with a torch. The Cloisonné piece is made separately and is set from the back with a plate bearing his signature. Each finished piece is a unique work of art.
