So.... here is a little about my transformation:
Moving onto making my own bail.... I took apart a couple of necklaces that I bought at a jewelry party to create this one, since I wanted something that the bead store didn't offer.
I then went onto experimenting with wire.... I really had no clue what I was doing other than what I saw in magazines.... I still have lots to learn about wire.
I then got an itch for something more. I had a small kiln available and started to make ceramic beads. My first beads were made from earthenware which is fired to 1800 degrees.
I then moved onto a mid-fire porcelain and stoneware clay which is fired to 2200 degrees.
Following that I went onto enameling which quickly led into cutting discs.....
..... and here I am today with copper tubes.... There will be more styles coming out in Belle Armoire....
I am experimenting more with this medium and enjoying it immensely. I am able to combine enameled components with ceramics. I am definitely the type that just likes to see where life takes me and that applies to my creativeness as well.
So, where did you start and where are you today?
