Still playing with enamel

Thank you everyone for taking time to comment on my blog - I appreciate your comments especially those of you who have way more skill then I do!

Penny and I bought 3 more enamel colours and I made these earrings.

Michaela wanted me to make her a pair of earrings with stars um well stars are not so easy - they look more like starfish. I used orient red - the bumps are clear beads crushed and sprinkled on.

I have been using hairspray as a fixative for the enamel before firing - I have decided that it is not such a good idea as it seems to make my throat close up so I have bought a spray bottle and will be using gum arab and distilled water.
