CANDY&Co. - The "Flower" series from the Art Collection is a versatile brooch pendant crafted with emeralds, sapphires, diamonds, 18k gold, and enamel, paying homage to the time-honored enamel craft. Transparent enamel allows light to gracefully pass through, seamlessly merging enamel glaze with a metal base. Through a series of precise processes, it attains a translucent and vibrant quality, akin to painted glass, creating a mesmerizing play of light and shadow in the sunlight. Inspired by blooming flowers, the Flower series features gradient, three-dimensional, delicate enamel petals, resembling the wings of a cicada. These petals seamlessly connect with the central Padparadscha gemstone and diamonds. Every intricately designed petal, with its diverse twists and turns, is meticulously outlined through numerous nights and days, creating a lifelike appearance that bursts forth with a captivating brilliance. The transparent enamel craftsmanship, recognized as an intangible cultural heritage, poses an international challenge due to its complexity and fragility, making it exceptionally rare. The designer persists in integrating this highly challenging craft into jewelry pieces, preserving culture while innovating within that rich heritage.
