Plique-a-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. It is in effect a miniature version of stained glass.
Our fabulous Art Nouveau style butterflies are made from sterling silver with Marcasite details and set with a genuine oval Ruby body. Perfect pinned on a lapel or blouse but for a different look, thread a silver chain or cord through the antenna and wear as pendant.
