First Enamel

DSC06570 DSC06568

These are my first attempts at glass enameling on Sterling Silver. I think they came out well and I am excited to do much more of this work. My efforts should only get better with practice.

These are not the only pieces. I made at least 10 of the skating Pegasus and three of the Rose Hearts. 

Like lost wax casting there is no certainty on how each piece will come out of the heat. Temperatures for firing the glass are 1450 F. Success rate is very high but there is always that chance of the unexpected.
