I have been hammering some copper today, not really sure hat i had in mind i just let the hammer do the work. I used a blow torch to add patina to the finshed piece, hopefilly i will make a few pieces of jewellery this weekend out of copper, My copper pieces seem to go really well at the craft fairs. I had a good day on sunday selling my enameled beads, i have added a few beads and headpins to my etsy site, feel free to have a look. This week has just flown by and i'm glad i could do with a long lie in bed, hope everyone has a great weekend when i comes, im off now to go and watch private practise, i just love that programme.
Well i got my new colours of enamel in the post today and i just could'nt wait to try them out. I just love the green colour, thanks again Barbara Lewis. I have also been making a few bits and bobs today for my craft fair tomorrow in St Andrews, fingers crossed it will be busy, hope everyone has a good weekend i'm going to go to bed soon as i have an early start tomorrow. night all
Here is a necklace that i have quickly put together today, I have used copper pipe which i have hand sawn all these components from, then i used 80 mesh thomson enamels, i have linked some together using jumprings then others using wire that i have enameled the tips. I have still been busy making more torch fired enameled beads for my fair 2 weeks today, fingers crossed that i sell some. I will also be taking all my beads taht are on my etsy site, so the site will be closed that day in case i sell any of the sets listed so if you fancy a set be quick as the might not be there for long. well i better get myself of to bed now it's been a busy weekend night all,x
I just seem to be chasing my tail all the time, with trying to work full and part time, plus trying to make beads for my bead fair on the 26th of this month and making more pieces of jewellery for my fair in St Andrews next weekend, but i did manage to make this piece, it measures about 3", i have made this using copper pipe, then enameled this using 80 mesh thomson enamels, i Have still to add ribbon, hopefully i will get this done sometime soon. I had a fab time in London at the weekend, never got to do much sight seeing, but i still had a great time at the drum festival with the young chap that i was looking after, next time i go hopefully i might take my hubby you never know. Well i better get making more beads.
