Last week I posted pictures of some pieces I had enameled. Here is a look at what I did with some of those pieces along with a couple other items I completed last week and before.

Techniques used besides enameling were soldering, forming, etching and handmaking tube rivets.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. I'm hoping to have some of these listed in my etsy shop within the next few days. Let's see if I actually accomplish that!

A Peek at What's Coming Up

It's about time I posted something on my blog so how about a peek at what I've been up to very recently. Enameling!

Enameling, at least my experience with it, reminds me of that saying about a boy "...when he was good he was very, very good but when he was bad he was horrid." When the color combinations, quality of enameling (no dings, pock marks, etc.) and the enamel gods are with you (e.g. the extra holes not filling up or when they do are easily corrected without ruining what you've already done and no refires necessary), the components you end up with are a thing of beauty!

Here are a couple of pictures of some of the pieces I will be incorporating into some jewelry for a show this weekend...

 I'll try to post some pictures of completed pieces later this week.
