enameled beads

More enameled beads, i'm loving amking these at the moment, but i need to buy more colours, i'm running low already. I did manage to burn my finger yesterday, but it's not to bad. Hope everyone has had a great weekend, i was working, but i did manage to visit a craft fair, i always love to see what others are selling, i did see some gorgeous glass ware, i'm going to go on-line to their shop and maybe treat myself to a lovely glass bowl that was for sale. I have a busy week ahead, my gorgeous daughter has her ballet concert this week, i just love watching her on stage, well i'm now of to the land of nod, will hopefully post again soon.x

Ivory Blues

yahoo finally got round to trying enamelling, i had the wrong gas to start with but Barbara put me on the right path, i have also made a necklace, will post the photo soon, or check out my flickr to see it, I really need to be getting more colours now, as i did'nt want to get to many in case i was really rubbish, i also need to get some thin mandrels that fit into the tiny holes on the filligree balls, will hopefuuly be making a few more pieces over the next few days, fingers crossed i will find the time.
