I'm just checking in to let everyone know, there's nothing new right now! The Steelers squeaked out a win in a very horribly officiated game on Sunday - they play on Thursday again - let's hope they do better! I did make some beads today (for the holiday faire I'm participating in) and I made some big big focals that will be turned into ornaments if I like them enough! If so, I'll try and put one together to show you! Meantime, have a great day! Pretty much only a week until Thanksgiving!
Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!
