PLIQUE-A-JOUR

Hilary’s plique-a-jour jewelry is a modern take on a centuries-old enameling technique. French for “letting in daylight”, plique-a-jour is a time-intensive process whereby transparent enamel is inlayed into open spaces and repeatedly fired in a kiln until the desired results are achieved. When illuminated, the jewelry pops with a brilliant and surprising pop of color. When not captured in light, the pieces have a bold elegance that stand on their own.
