Levinger & Bissinger silver plique-a-jour enamel pearl scarab brooch. Maker's mark for Henrick Levinger. Sadly two small panels of plique damaged to the right hand side but I doubt I'd have been able to get it otherwise.

    Beautiful as all your pieces! Missing enamel can easily be restored with resin, have a look to my posts on Janvier Quercia.

    My tip: back the piece with scotch tape before applying clear resin (un colored) with a syringe. You will then let it harden in the freezer (as resin won't flow!).
    For colouring, go to a creative crafts shop and... Use the testers markers or buy some of them!
    Have fun and greatings with these projects, cheers!

    Gems your collection of plique-a-jour is wonderful. They are all exquisite but this one so far really does it for me! Please restore it! And Kyratango's work on hers has been fab!
