We have had some very wild weather here in SA - crazy lightning and thunder storms - and rain - buckets and buckets of the stuff! There has been quite a bit of localised flooding - we are high and dry thank goodness and have escaped with very little damage - just some overflowing gutters and a few spot leaks. In this State we are just not that equipped for torrential rain so the drains were not coping at all and a number of shops in our local town sustained damage. No human injury though so I guess we should be thankful for that. With all that scary weather activity I holed up in the studio and have been playing with my torch again. I really enjoy the process of adding colour to metal so I made a few earrings today to pop onto my madeit site - it is a bit empty after the market action of the last week so I hope to add things over the next little while though I fear I may have missed the Christmas rush?!
This fiery red is my favourite enamel colour. I have used some little Greek ceramic beads as accents - this one is grey although the pic is a bit dodgy!
