Playtime . . .

Just for fun last night I fired up the torch and cracked the seals on those jars of enamel I bought, oh . . . two years ago (frowny face here!) and I wondered if I really remembered what I learned in that great weekend class 'way back then.  And surprise!  I did!

Now, I don't pretend that these little swingy earrings are gallery-worthy or even worth selling at all but what a great start.  I laid awake all night just picturing all of the sweet colored things I could do when the day started.

A few quick errands and I'm carving out time today to play, chained to the bench experimenting and maybe creating a handful of new Spring-y bright things.

And as accents for my set stones?  Oh yes.  Yes, yes, I'm ready to head back to the workshop and start with a Spring clean slate - just one more cuppa tea . . .

Definitely worthy of selling...love the spring color and the design. I have also been sitting on enamels, originally used with my lampwork beads, & have wanted to try the torch enameling but just haven't done it...this may make me dig them out. At least it would give me a place to begin to see if I even like it or not.

I would buy them. Love that color. Can't wait to see what else you apply this to. Keep on, woman.
