My Creative World…
Posts Tagged ‘torch fired enamel’

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.

Jingle Jangle Dangles

This is jewelry with motion and sound…just a little gentle tinkling as you move. More metal melding is combined with forged wire and elements fused into the pewter. The dangles are torch fired enamel.

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.

Pass the Peas Please

My husband has been telling me that I need to make some more pea necklaces. I finally did some with a new twist of enameling the pods with my torch fired enamel.

Test Driving

Whenever I finish a new piece of jewelry, I have to test drive it even if I just wear it around the house. I try to make sure that it is comfortable, that nothing falls apart, or pokes in your skin. This one passed the test.

This piece is for sale at Heart and Hands in Franklin on Main Street.
