Here is some interesting pen photo's of some cloisonné work if you want the depth and breath of the type of items just google and scroll down to photo's.

this photo is placing the wires on the base, as a side note the wires have to be drawn to the size and shape by the artist since they are limited availability commercially.

The one photo is from a reseller in the US called hisnibs. Cloisonne Some as he states are not high end cloisonne pens.
The other two are from Here is a very good description of how one company does the process. Understand whether it is a low end item or a high end all the steps are the - PenGallery - Élysée Cloisonné

And If you use pierced metal forms that is another style and name. Along with using etch cells or pockets is also another named style most are French names and I will not try to spell them. Wiki for cloisonné should list them all.

There is a faux cloisonné using colored resins.

I thought about that a few years ago but quickly gave up on the idea.. It may work as a final in a bottle stopper..We have a few large bags of seaglass from a few years collecting.. Helps growing up where there was over 300 recorded shipwrecks within the last 100 years lol
