painting with fire!

Wow, exciting title right? I wouldn’t normally post twice in one day but this is pretty fun: Barbara Lewis, the enamel bead artist, is hosting a wonderful giveaway on her blog to promote her new book, Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry: A Workshop in Painting with Fire. And what can you win? These:
A bunch of cool beads, cones, and filigree bead caps! Which are pretty damn cool in acid yellow, but you can also (if you win) request them in any colour you want. I think if I was lucky enough to get chosen, I might request a multi-coloured bundle! Is that too cheeky? You can purchase Barbara’s beads too, like these beautiful Sunsplash discs. Sigh.
You can have a peek inside her book on Amazon: lots of information and in an easy-to-read format. I really want to take a local silver-smithing course in September and it looks like enamelling might be next on my list…
