Honeycombs Enamel Workshop

Fab day in the studio today, only second time in for 3 weeks as I haven't been well but great workshop with some lovely ladies.  A huge thank you to Linda who came along to give me a hand.
The workshop was for beginners and we used copper blanks to enamel onto.  The ladies made various pendants sifting the enamel colours onto the copper then firing in the kiln at temperatures around 750-800 deg C.  They used enamel threads to decorate and did some wire work, scragfitto and just had fun.

 Everyone fired their first pieces really well

The only thing I forgot to do was take photographs of the finished results but everyone said they enjoyed the day.
