Stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved with enamel as a medium, I have developed my own unique method of sifting and fusing it on a movable base. My work comprises mainly brooches and necklaces made out of silver or gold chain alone, or chain attached onto a copper mesh base which are then enamelled. My designs cannot be pre-conceived; each piece is allowed to create itself.
‘The processes Liana uses in making her jewellery are ones of building and burying… The natural quality of the surface gives a feel of a much earlier age, yet buried under the enamel are anonymous, potentially unattractive, silver chains of this age of mass production. The point of delight is, not only that unique, colourful and exciting pieces of jewellery are created, but that the rules of enamelling have been broken and rewritten so successfully.’
