Before During After

A glimpse into the enamel world.
This is a glass panel, semi Jackson Pollack If I do say so my self LOL As you can see the piece stays pretty true to when I start to the finish. I put in some really good music and go to town. I love enamels, the colors are so wonderful, they get kinda smeary as the heat takes hold. This process takes about an hour Mixing dry enamels to painting then the kiln time is over an hour. Slow and steady wins the pace.

Now Should I cut it? I really want to cut it up for jewelry LOL

If I leave it as panel art I should mention it is kinda skewed not quite squared. So help me decide friends.

It became art! Sold in the gallery! Wooohooo!

Okay Crazyness! I am prepping for a Home party for the 23rd of April. Then this week I got a call form Jacoby Art Center and Gallery, they have asked me to present my jewelry during an Art fashion Show. I can’t tell you how exciting this is for me. Needless to say I have been relising on Etsy more than I usually do because I have to add to my stash for these shows. So I apologize.

The Fashion show is – May 2 at 6pm
The tickets are 15 dollars in advance and 20 dollars at the door. This includes food and wine and show.

This gallery is huge and cool- can’t wait to show pictures. keep a look out

I have no idea how I will do or if I will fit in to the venue but it was so exciting to be invited.

Wish me Luck!
