Wild weather and earrings - a good combo...

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!
A nice pastel mint colour with lemon beads - great for Summer I think!
And purple of course because there simply isn't enough purple in the world - especially teamed up with RED! I also made a few other colours so there is a nice little range now.

You make me want to melt...
enamel onto copper that is. You're inspiring me to get a disk cutter for sure!
Keep up the good work!
