Sometimes it isn't the most lavish or glittering bits that go to our hearts, it's often pieces like this. Replete with artistry, color, craftsmanship and certainly one of a kind, they pluck at the heartstrings and remain in the consciousness.
An exemplary hand fan shaped silver pendant is enlivened by outstanding multi-colored enamels. There are three types of enamel techniques used and the hues sweep you away with their lush variations.
The three are guilloché and translucent colors, the same with opaque color for the blue and rose flower areas and champlevé enamel for the lime green border.
Four roses, in life cycles from an early bud to full bloom, grace the main section of the fan. One is white with pin center and shades of moss green to the petal edges; the rest are sea shell pink with green stems and leaves.
The silver work mimics an actual fan with the demarcation of sticks, an engraved guard at one end, and even a faux rivet at the base.
