Ahhhhhhh…Studio Time

I love it when I get some uninterrupted time in my studio! So…today, after I made breakfast, picked the garden, mowed the yard and ate lunch, I got to escape to my creative space and get to work.

I had an order for 5 pairs of earrings of different colors so that was first on the list. They are all torch fired enamel in various shapes and colors and textures.

Then I popped outside to water my flowers on the patio which were looking a little wilted, and then got back to work. My dress form mannequin had been needing a makeover for a long time and I had an idea for it when I was driving down the road yesterday. I took off the old fabric cover and covered it with vintage dress pattern tissue.

While waiting for her to dry, I was sorting through some of the polymer clay beads that I made recently, I noticed a good combination with a ceramic clay pendant that I had made a while back using one of my hand carved stamps. A good starting point for a new necklace.

It’s About Color and Texture and Fun

 

 

I have a serious color and texture addiction. Hi…My name is Sherry and I’m a colorholic/textureholic. I had a delicious time in the studio combining materials and techniques to come up with some new creations.

I pulled out my torch and glass rods and lampworked some head pins to use for the stamens in the flowers. I torch fired some enamel flowers and rectangles, adding some glass frit for extra texture. I added some patina to some 22 cal. shells and combined them with some beads and wire for the finished product.

Each pair of earrings has many steps to achieve the final product.

These will be available at Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery and Cliques Hair Salon in Columbia, or email me if you are interested.

 

 

Creative Sparks

 

My recent class combined with my flea market finds have inspired some new pieces. The yellow turquoise set in a copper bezel is combined with some colorful beads for a summery look.

Stamps from my Richard Salley class have become earrings and also bracelets which are made with leather from a vintage satchel and vintage buckles. You can find these at Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery or Cliques Hair Salon in Columbia, TN or contact me directly.

 

Sweet Inspirations


 

Wandering through the streets of the Old City of Jerusalem is a feast for the senses! This colorful candy was an inspiration when I began experimenting with torch fired enamels recently. When I was in college, I had a semester of enameling and we used a kiln. When I found out that it could be done with a torch as well, I got so excited that I immediately ordered some enamel powders and started playing. I already had most of the tools and materials and a working knowledge of how enamels were used so I jumped in with both feet. It was hard to stop once I began. My palette is limited, but now that I know what I’m doing, I will order more colors. These are a few of my new creations.
