I have a fine silver cloisonne blank, and have been contemplating ways in which to use it.

I think I am going to go with a Tudor rose design, with gold in the center, opaque enamels (black? cobalt blue? charcoal?) as the background, and a transparent/translucent petal color moving from white to deep pink- the rose color that's traditionally called (in French) "thighs of an aroused nymph". :)

Sounds like fun. :)

(Is spring in the air?)

Hmm, this enamelling lark is more interesting than one might think ::giggle::

Hey- don't blame (credit?) enameling for that one! It's a Known Phrase in the antique rose community!
