Specially for Jewels1900!
Here is my work, creating plique a jour with resin on unfinished silver plaques.
They are hallmarked with boar's head, and maker's mark J(oak leaf)Q
for Janvier Quercia active between 1899/1936
I made this more than 30 years ago, so for sure modern resin would give better result.
Hope you will love them!

    Thanks Leah for your wonderful comment, but I didn't designed it in anyway... Only found several antique 1900 pieces unfinished from the jeweller (Janvier Quercia) workshop.
    I had them lightly gilded then used resin to give the effect they would have if finished by the jeweller.
    For all this time I haven't wore it as I couldn't find an accurate clasp :-(

    Best of both worlds there - an old piece finished with your own talents!

    Wow. These are quite amazing. Fancy finding them! Would they have originally been strung on a wide piece of black ribbon to wear? Thanks for posting.

    Thanks all for wiewing and loving :-)
    Yes Jewels, each plaque was worn single on a ribbon as a dog collar, closed with a "tube" catch. I sewn them together on a sheer iridescent ribbon, but never wore... Always looking for a clasp!

    oooh, I see what you did here, very talented, I will have to experiment with my piece.

    The tip is to back the piece with Scotch tape BEFORE applying the resin with a syringe!
