This post has been a long time coming. In January I decided to challenge myself to make 24 enamel pendants in 2011. I had no idea it would take me until May to get the first one done. I’m glad it’s not just done, but made up into an actual piece. I am reserving the right to show some pendants that are not made into finished pieces.
So what happened? Technical difficulties. Life. Stuff. More stuff.
But here I am with one enamel pendant done and I’m so proud of it. I made the enamel oval at Art and Soul and created a brass tab setting for it. I also learned the wire working techniques to make the bronze and copper pod at Art and Soul and love bringing the two techniques together in one piece. The pod holds beads in similar colors as the ones in the necklace.
I’m hoping I can get back on track and will have enamel pendant no. 2 to show you shortly. Believe me, I have serious respect for people who make a ring or anything a day! I’m also thankful I didn’t challenge myself to make an enamel pendant a week. Here’s hoping I’m not scrambling and burning the house down on New Years Eve.
