Footnotes

  • Colette (b.1937), an internationally acknowledged master of cloisonné enamel, is a self-taught artist using jewelry as miniature canvases. Many pieces are fired up to twenty-five times to achieve the proper tones and subtleties of shading. In 1978, she received the Prix d'honneur at the Limoges Biennale. Her work is part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum of Arts and Design in New York, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, amongst others.
