Torching Demonstration at Garden Gallery in Elkhorn this Saturday, 4/20!

Come out to the GARDEN GALLERY in Elkhorn this Saturday, April 20th! It is “Ladies’ Day” and the shops will all be open to browse and buy from a wonderful variety of wares. I will be there with my torching tools, enamel and copper pieces to show how the Enameling onto Copper process works and can result in unique jewelry pieces. I am pretty new at this myself, so anything can happen!!

Also, don’t miss HANDMADE on CHARLES STREET home show May 3 & 4 at 7746 Charles Street in Omaha… For more information on this event, VISIT: FRIENDS BY DESIGN.

More adventures in torch-fired enamel onto copper! I’ve been working hard to build up a nice variety of hand-cut copper earrings and pendants for my home show coming up–Handmade on Charles Street in Omaha. It is May 3rd and 4th and is coming up quickly!!
The copper is a thick gauge and so far, it’s been all squares and rectangles! I ordered some copper circles today on line so I can torch some other shapes. I feel a little like a cheater, but I think I will get over it… It’s hard enough to get those straight lines for the squares and rectangles with my cutters. I know my circles would end up looking like wobbly egg-shaped items.
