Can't you just hear Paula Deen saying that? She's from near here (Savannah) and she has a restaurant in Savannah I've never been to. Apparently it's hard to get reservations there. Since I don't have all my photos on this laptop, I'm just going to leave you with some bead porn today (it's in my etsy shop now, and I have all my beads with me, so I can mail it to you!). People in the North may say, what's that big orange ball in the sky, the sun? No, it's a great bead by Sue! Have a great day!
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!
