I know, I don't get out enough. I really don't! I have some people working on my yard, and was kind of tired of the noise, so after I made beads this morning, my mom and I went to lunch and then BB&B. I got this cool jewelry hanger thingy - I thought it might be good for those photos of jewelry that you have to submit to magazines that just don't come out quite right when you lay them flat! Well, that's my excitement for today!
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!
