We are leaving the beach tomorrow, at like 7 am!!! I took no pictures this time, we didn't go to any bead stores, or to Savannah, or anywhere! But we had friends come down, and it was great! The kids all got along, and I actually have a tan this year. 12 hours apparently through rain tomorrow but I will be glad to get home, to my torch and my life. And hey, school starts soon - can't be all that bad to be home!!!!!!
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!
