green plique-a-jour flower stud earrings by Garden Collection
c.10mm diameter, green enamel and sterling silver flower stud earrings. Made in the Highlands exclusively for Alchemist by Ellen Whealing.
Plique-à-jour (French for "letting in daylight") is a vitreous enamelling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonné, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. Known to be one of the most complex and skilled forms of enamelling, it is now rarely seen for sale, so these are indeed special flowers for a special lady.
