More Enameled Copper Earring with Clay Beads

These are 3 pair of earrings that I have added to my Handmade at Amazon Shop and here is the link to see what is for sale there: Creative Clay Cafe

I handmade the clay drop beads as well as torch-fired the enameled beads. The combination of the glaze colors and the enamel colors worker out! I can’t wait to make more of these mixed media earrings!

Torching Annealed Steel Wire

twistedwire

I have branched out and started twisting other types of wire for enameling  with my torch. This is annealed steel wire and works great, plus I love the rustic look for the earrings. The immersion method is used. Trees on the lower left are torched into the best green color I have (for trees). They will be spruced up with beads and put on ear wires.

Some finished pairs for fall.
The clay beads can be matched for a similar look to the enameled beads.

New Fall Enamel Color Combinations

New Fall Enamel Color Combinations


I was up to the task yesterday. I cleaned some copper and fired up the torch to try and get some fall color combinations made. I really love the browns, reds and yellows. It puts me in the mind of fall.
Have a great short week!

New Torched Enamel Earrings


Finished pairs of recently torched earrings. I am making more of the clay drop pieces and they will be included in future pairs, but the more simple earrings are the ones I would find myself wearing, so they end up getting top billing.
I will have to have the clay as part of the pairs that I will include on Handmade at Amazon… Yep, I was invited to be a part of that and I’m very excited. Not sure when it will go “live” but I’ve been preparing descriptions and wrote my artist profile this weekend.

New Enameled Earrings with Posts


Enameling is great. These are some posts that I torched recently onto 1/2 inch copper squares and circles. Once again, packaging is important when displaying jewelry for sale. I continue to use black and white images at the top of packaging which draws attention to the color of the enamels.

I hope to be chosen for some upcoming local farmers markets to display my clay work and enameled jewelry. This coming Saturday, I will teach an enameling class at an artist conference about an hour and a half from home. The people who take the course will take home a pair of dangle earrings and a pendant that they will torch themselves after choosing enamel colors from my stash. If I am on my game, I will try and take a photo or two of what they finish in the class.
