I finally took pictures of the bowls I enameled on Saturday. Last night was overcast while I was taking photographs and then it started raining for about a minute and then the sun came out. You have got to love Midwest weather.
The bowls are six inch circumference, we then shape the bowls and we enamel the bowls. I thought it would be nice to have some bowls without designs cut out in the middle, to give customers a selection to choose from.

I also worked on taking photographs of earrings last night. The only photo I have had time to crop and resize were the black/purple enameled earrings with black/purple flameworked glass beads. I really like how these earrings came out. Mom and I have decided to make more of these up, when we have the time.
I also created a bracelet last night from the glass tiles that I added pictures that mom and I have taken over the past year. I wanted to make a bracelet to wear to see how durable it was before I made any more up to sell. I also made a pendant out of one of the tiles to wear on a Sterling Silver chain to test also.
Yes, I know it is spring, but I already had an idea in mind for this bracelet. I do like how it came out though I made a small error on the clasp which I now know not to do again. Live and learn.
I am wearing this today and I am pretty happy with the results.
