Manufacturing
Misis jewellery is “made in Italy”.Misis pays a lot of cares and attention to manufacturing process because each piece has to be produced with the most sophisticated and update techniques as high jewellery level requires.

Enamelling Techniques
This is the Misis manufacturing brand identity. Enamel is a special detail that gives originality and makes each piece unique and different. Misis invest a lot in new techniques research. Innovative enamelling includes the following:

  1. Mother of pearl enamel
  2. Enamel with sand
  3. Enamel with glass balls

MISIS also used more traditional enamelling techniques:

Painted Enamel
In this technique enamel is used as if it was normal oil paint for paintings and the surface of the metal as if it
was canvas. Inside Misis workrooms skilled craftsmen paint by hand each piece of jewellery using antique enamelling and painting techniques developed in Italy since the X° century a.D.

Cloisonné
It’s the oldest enamelling technique: the name comes from the French word “cloison” meaning small cell,
compartment. After drawing the subject on the plate very thin metallic threads are fixed around the borders of
the drawing, then enamel is put in the compartments formed by the metallic threads and the artwork is finallY cooked. An extraordinary example of this technique is the PALA D’ORO in the Saint Mark’s Basilica in Ve-
nice, made in Byzantine style between the year 1000 and 1200.

Plique á Jour
This technique consists in preparing transparent but lighly coloured enamel dye which lets light go through a
grid made of metallic stripes soldered together. The effect given is that of a small stained-glass window.
Started in Italy in the XVI century, this technique gives the effect of a small stained-glass window.

MISIS is looking for importers and distributors in India, both for entering the online and the traditional retail segment.
