|Mishka and Reveille|
While cleaning up the garage came across two copper sheets that mom glued patterns on - more plates to saw out! I need to get the perimeters sawed out so mom can saw out the interiors (my least favorite part besides filing and sanding!).
Mom started drawing up a kokapelli pattern for one of our large shadow boxes - it will be three different kokapelli dancing. I can't wait to enamel them - I have color ideas running through my head and I want to get them on the copper to see how it looks.

Pendants getting ready to be put in the kiln.
A bib necklace I have been trying to enamel for almost a year. There is transparent colors under the opaque colors - kept cracking so I though I would try the opaques. I love, love, love how it looks but the enamel cracked when I went to take pictures of the piece. Mom and I are going to have to break off all the enamel and start from scratch - third time is the charm.
I also had to enamel because we had a customer ask if we had any turtle pendants. He wanted a turtle pendant for his wife for Valentine's Day. He also asked if we could enamel the turtle in teal and purple - we don't have teal enamel but I hope this is close enough. I really like how these turned out.
A hummingbird pendant in my favorite "Peacock" colors.
A pendant for a project that we will post on the 25th of February.
This photo doesn't do the colors justice! The enamels I used were various transparent purples - they look fantastic but not under this lamp.
So, that was a recap of the last two weekends. I seriously need to do better on the blogging! I hope you all had a great weekend too!
