Photo: Plique-à-Jour Enameled Fine Jewelry by Diane Echnoz Almeyda - A selection of both pierced and wire work plique-à-jour enamels. Created from 18K gold, fine silver, or sterling silver and fine vitreous (glass) enamels, plique-à-jour enamels are truly miracles when one considers the differences in expansion and contraction of the various metals and glass when exposed to high heat. (Not only that....they're beautiful!)
