Fun with Enamels

I've wanted to try enameling for almost as long as I've been working with PMC.  Finally, I broke down and bought myself an enameling on metal clay kit from Thompson Enamel, which comes with ten enamel colors.  I have done a few test firings of the colors and tried my hand and wet packing two pieces.  They aren't perfect, but I am pretty happy with the way they came out, since it was my first time.

I can tell already that I am going to like enameling.  I love the look of the transparent colors and can't wait to try some more (I've already ordered a few more colors).

The heart shaped piece above was made using the impression of a very interesting shell I purchased from Pixie Supplies

The above photo was taken from Pixie Supplies' shop: 


  1. I am honored to be mentioned and very happy that my shells give the inspiration for such a beautiful jewelry! I should go to my shop now and list more of these gorgeous True Heart shells (I do not have any listed!) Thank you very much!

  2. ooh, I love that first piece :)

  3. Lisa, those are so very pretty! I think I want to do enameling now!

  4. Lisa I really love that first one it's gorgeous - never interested in enamelling before - but now... ;-) Lovely blog post.

  5. I love the first one too! Isn't experimenting fun?!
