Torch Fired Pendant I DIY Tutorial

Sgraffito torch fired enamel: “Sgraffito” Italian for “scratch through”, is exactly that, scratching a design trough a dry sifted coat of enamel, to reveal the previously fired color under it. This enameling method lets you “draw” any pattern with a pointed tool on the surface of your piece. When the piece is fired a second time melting the dry sifted enamel, the pattern is revealed. Tab setting is one of the easiest ways to secure a focal piece to a backing, there is no solder or heat involved, so its considered a “cold connection “ . Tabs are prongs cut from the baking piece and then bent over to hold the enamel cabochon in place.

Twig Circles Stud Earrings with Foldformed Leaves DIY PDF Digital tutorial

I wanted a pair of stud earrings that where small enough to have some type of metal or beaded dangles. One of the ideas I had, was making some small “organic” element without having to cast from “live” plants. Experimenting to make these “twigs” was fun, and opened a whole new set of ideas to try out. Like using the “twigs” with foldformed copper leaves dangles. The metal leaves could be enameled or treated with colored patinas. The twig circles can also be used with lampwork drops, head pins with or without threaded beads. So if you have off-mandrel drops or glass head pins this is the project for you!
