Well, little did I know that my current medicines were working against me and landed me in the hospital for a few days due to my kidneys not working right! What a surreal experience, but thankful to be back on my feet and just completed a stint at the Unicoi Lodge (one of my favorite places to be) showing off enamel bead bead making. In fact, we did a video of the process and hope to have that up soon.
Here’s a snapshot of my work area set up at Unicoi–the torch certainly draws an audience.
Here’s is one of my gallery pieces that specially showcases the variety of beads I can make and all the color tones that are possible. While I am focused on my metal clay work right now, enameling has always held a special love for me. As a designer I can truly create colors (much like an oil painter) with my torch and glass. It is fun still to this day and I love teaching it as much as possible.
Thank you for your support and encouragement! I’ll be preparing for the Butternut Creek Festival in Blairsville coming up on July 20-21st as well as continued bed rest . . .sigh! I’ll work on getting the video up soon.
