 Cloisonné enamelware dates back over 500 years in China. Being especially popular during part of the Ming Dynasty (mid 15th-centure). Owing to its brilliant colours and designs, cloisonné has been highly appraised around the world.

Cloisonné beads are no different in this process, and their energies are similar to those of flaked stone.
