Fun with Raku enamel

Preview Image: 

I played a bit with the raku process a while back and got so-so results.  Then I listened to a video by Jean Tudor through the Enamelist Society, Inc and she inspired me to give it another try.  I incorporated some of her suggestions  and was able to get some really nice results.  As she says - if it doesn't come out the way you want it the first time, heat it up and try again.  In most cases it takes 2-4 tosses into the can to get the look I want - or to get the 2 parts of earrings to look somewhat similar. 

Demons and Angels 2 day Online Trunk Show at the LBA Designers Galleria Showcase

I'm doing a joint show with Pandanimal Lampwork in the LBA Designers Galleria Showcase Facebook group.  Our theme this month is Demons and Angels.  As we discussed it with each other we tossed out ideas on how to approach this so our thinking was to go with opposites - angels and demons, yin and yang, black and white.  Come check out our show to see how we interpreted this theme.  Here are pictures of a few of the designs I'll have available in the show.

What are you doing to keep busy while you're hanging at home?

A lot of us in the United States are sheltering-in-place right now to reduce the speed of transmission of the Corona virus.  I've been making jewelry (surprise!  LOL!).  It is also recommended to wear a mask when out in public so I had to see if I could make a mask with metal.  It took a bit of measuring, remeasuring, hammering, annealing, folding, hammering, annealing, ... and finally enameling. Here they are! I can stamp a tag with MD, RN, PA, CV19, or ??? Or I can dangle a gemstone below them.
