Spring, time for some impressionistic work
I have just become fascinated with the options to create with enamels. Cloisonne just blows me away and I think I will never run out of ideas. But now I find I can create impressionistic pieces with enamel and enamel crayons. My first attempt was a large piece on copper. I copied a photo I had and as you can see it is not horrible.
So, I got adventurous and tried it on a silver pendant and for a first attempt and I think it will do. And now my mission is to come up with other landscape and impressionistic images and make a series of pendants, earrings and bracelets.
Summer is around the corner so with tourists about to venture here to the coast I really need to have some interesting pieces that they will be able to take home as a reminder of their vacation. That can be a tall order but I am up for it.
If you are visiting here April 28thand 29thI will be a Days at the Docks on Holden Beach under the curved bridge. Hope the weather is good and hope to see you there. It is always a beautiful show.
