Enameled Pieces

I didn’t get a chance to make a lot of beads this weekend. My cat had dental surgery this weekend and needed extra care. I was able to get together with my play day group and we played with enamels. Here’s the stuff I made.

Discs

These are domed copper discs. The one on the left had some interesting texture in it before I put a layer of clear enamel on. I should have left the clear enamel off. Lesson learned. The right one, has little beads that I stuck on I used some pigment enamels to add some red dots. Probably could have added more. FormFoldandHydraulicPressPieces

The left piece was totally different until I put some colored enamel on it. I have no idea what I’m going to do with it yet. It’s a form folded piece I made eons ago and I have no idea how I’m going to set it in something to make it into a piece of jewelry. Maybe in another eon, I’ll come up with an idea. It doesn’t sit flat so that’s an issue right there. The piece on the right I domed with a die on a pneumatic press on textured copper. There is only a coat of white enamel on the top so the colors from the copper came through. I like the way this looks so I’m not experimenting on it. I’ll probably set this one first since it’s the easiest.
