Mom sent me her design ideas and we went from there. We sawed out the pieces on Saturday and then I enameled them yesterday. Only had two disasters where I had to discard two of the smaller wheat sheves, but I think that is pretty good. Because of the cold, the yellow enamel is cracking when I am taking it out of the kiln. Even with the space heater set up, to slowly cool the pieces, the yellow is still giving me fits. I seriously can't wait for warmer weather! While I was enameling, I sent mom off to our favorite bead store to buy Czech beads for the necklace, and I think she picked out some cool ones, though I think she missed me. We ALWAYS go together when we bead shop.
