Well, tomorrow we take that long 12 hour drive to the beach, in South Carolina! I won't be posting tomorrow, and maybe sparingly while I am there, although I will bring my laptop. Of course, I won't be able to make any beads, but I am bringing all of my etsy stash, so if you purchase something, it will get mailed to you! Have a great week!
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!
