Adventures in Torch-Fired Enameling

It’s the start of a good day- going to explore and experiment with the contents of this box!

After ten years of metalsmithing, I’ve finally become curious about trying my luck with enameling. I’m looking forward to seeing shiny colors and experimenting with torch-firing. I’ve ordered sifters, trivets and colors. No kiln though- I want to be up close for the changing colors and molten glass!

I’m excited-blue, yellow, black and white opaque enamel to play with!
But first, I will make copper earrings to hold the enamel.

I love the potential of the copper to be shiny pink, black, purple and red-and the way that plays against the colors of the enamel. So much fun!
