This is the first in some garden art enamel that I've created. I have stencilled green leaves onto a black background on one side and then the other side has been enamelled in black and then gold lustre has been added with grasses being flicked through. I'll be adding to my etsy store just as soon as I remember to take the measurements.

I've joined Kristens' Share Your Creations Party today, and although it's not the best of photographs this is the latest creation for my Etsy store. I'm going to see if I can get a better photograph to list on Etsy. I don't think I quite got the idea of the name either and put my own name but I'm no wizard on the computer and at least I got the link back to Kristen's page OK.
Had a fab day on Wednesday with my friend Linda. She's a brilliant silversmith and came along to give me some tips. I very rarely work with silver (unless it's art clay) as I usually melt things but it was grea to actually have some success. We made a lovely pair of small ear-rings but when I tried to take a pic I kept getting flash back so can't put pic here but I'll try again. Also made a pendant and enamelled it in shades of blue and turquoise blue. The colours were lovely. I could be doing more silver in the future so watch this space. Thanks for everything Linda, it was a fab day.
