I milled the cloisonné wire for the cups slightly less high than I normally used for my jewellery as I had not wanted to counter enamel the cups. (I would later have them gold plated inside.)
Each cup required over 20 feet of fine silver wire and 8 feet of 24ct gold. I would apply silver and gold foils after the first firing.
Working on both cups together, I could work on one cup as the other cup’s adhesive was drying.
The cups were beginning to take shape. Each image flowed into another and the overall effect was hopefully, a marriage of love and memories. It was over a month before I finished just the wirework.
