Golden Age of Cyprus was designed with Gold plated Beads and Crystal Beads with an Enamel Pendant.
Enamelling is an old and widely adopted technology, for most of its history mainly used in jewelry and decorative art.
The earliest known enameled pieces have been dated to the 13th century BC, when Mycenaean goldsmiths inlaid enamels into gold rings. Since then, cultures all over the world have incorporated enameling into their art forms.
An island in the eastern Mediterranean, with a history of more than 8000 years, Cyprus was one of the earliest producers of copper in the world, had a flourishing metal industry and during the ‘Golden Age’ of Cyprus, the island enjoyed a high level of prosperity. This brought a great number of settlers and craftsmen from neighboring countries. In order to escape the troubles on the Greek mainland, Mycenaean refugees arrived in Cyprus establishing important workshops and introducing new ideas and techniques that played an important role in artistic creation. During this period a new decorative technique, that of cloisonne enameling, unknown elsewhere at the time, appeared in Cyprus.
