I had to miss last week, Spirals, because I just didn't have enough time. But since I was chosen to pick the theme for this week, I made it! The theme for this week was monochrome. I had to check with art friends to make sure that just didn't mean black and white. It doesn't! So my offering is this monochrome berry 2-drop peyote bracelet!
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!
