Playing with Enamel - a journey!

After playing with enamel for the past three months, I am happy to say that it will remain one of my favorite materials to be used on my beads!

I love to share this journey with you! Mind you, this is just a check point - there are much more to be explored and learned!

Some of you may remember these first few beads:

Starting out gingerly . . . only on a clear base bead, just testing out colors!




Venturing into other glass colors. . .




Start playing with combining enamel with my favorite glass - silver glass!

Striking silver glass . . .


Reducing silver glass . . .

Great work ! The enamel gives them a sort of hearthy tones. Gorgeous.
