My First Attempts At Enameling

Here are two photos of what I made this morning. Not like Barbara’s, but ok. I’ll use them for myself, in any event. I hope to do more this weekend – between school delays today, sick kid and my own headache (I need to get the chiropractor) I haven’t gotten much accomplished this week. I do have a few bead sets to list in the etsy shop – I’ll let you know later when I do!

  1. Thanks Laura!
    Not yet, Renate. I really did just finish them. The problem I had was some beads totally melted, and it's hard to get the enamel on the whole bead at one time. I did notice that when I took my time and thought about what I was doing, I did a better job. We'll see – I do love the look of these beads! PPP I guess! I would love to take the class, though, and see it done!

  2. It looks great!! I just need to find the time to do it. I have everything I need although only a minimum in enamel. Can't wait to see how mine turns out. BTW, love the new beads you listed yesterday 🙂

  3. Sue I have found that with the lampworking torches it is too hot. So I have turned the flame down and worked out in the flame with the thin filigree beads. With a thicker piece of metal I'm sure you would have to adjust.

  4. I can't wait until my class with Barbara next Saturday!! I am so excited to learn how to torch enamel beads. These look great for being a first attempt.
