We have a few holiday decor items remaining, including unique Christmas ornaments, holiday scented candles from Nouvelle, and handmade beeswax Christmas candlesticks. Starting December 27, 2007, we will be offering all of our Holiday Decor items at a discount of 50%. This is a great opportunity to come in and shop for yourself, or get ahead for Christmas 2008.

We would like to thank everyone who has shopped with us for the success we have had in the first few months that we have been open. We have enjoyed getting to know all of you, and we look forward to serving you in 2008.

Robert Madison Home is proud to carry a collection of Cloisonne. Cloisonne is what some have called jewelry for your home. Below is a description of how Cloisonne is made, and some pictures of the Cloisonne we have in the store.

Cloisonne, an ancient metalworking technique, is a multi-step enamel process used to produce jewelry, vases, and other decorative items.

Artists take metal and form it into the shape they want to use. Paper and pencil are then used to transfer the design they are going to use to the object. Metal partitions are applied to act as color seperators. These partitions are held in place by a soldering past. The piece is then heated and the partitions are permanently affixed to the object. The piece is then cooled to allow for the application of the color. Frit (glass crushed to a powder) in a water-based paste is painted into the partitions using an annotated pattern. When the frit has dried firing in an oven melts the frit onto the metal. Several repetitions of the process are used to ensure that the coatings are the same height as the partitions. The glass and a portion of the cloisons are ground and polished to form an even and smooth surface. The exposed metal is electroplated with a thin film of gold to prevent corrosion and to give a pleasing appearance.

Thanks so much to all who were able to attend and hopefully those of you who werent will be able to come by in the next few weeks to see everything new and exciting we have.
