Amongst the chaos.
A couple of months ago I purchased my first kiln and LOVE it!!! It has to be the best things I have ever bought. The kiln I bought is small but it is perfect for what I want to use it for. Enamelling on metal has become a new passion of mine. It makes sense after working with glass. A perfect combination :))) Unfortunately I've only been able to play with it a couple of times as things became quite chaotic with my Daughter breaking her arm and various other things so this has to take a back seat and just taunt me.
I've been asked to do a couple commissions recently completely unexpected and I'm very excited can't wait to get my teeth into them after Christmas. Jewellery is such a personal thing and when you get people actually asking you to make them something specific, especially if it has a story behind it, it has to be one of the biggest compliments and very rewarding when it's made.
Might actually get around to posting some photos of some of my pieces soon!
