PRESENTS "HOT STUFF"
copper enameled jewelry....long necklace sets....earrings

Heat of the volcanoes created these lava flows on the Big Island of Hawaii

Heat from my kiln created the GLASS FIRED ON COPPER JEWELRY
The process of creating
Copper Enameled Jewelry

- copper is cleaned with acid to remove any
oil

-1st firing with base coat of powdered glass,
which if finer than sugar or salt.

-Piece cleaned each time it is removed from
the kiln, as it has ash on the copper
underside (each piece is fired 4 + times,
usually 6 or 7)

-There are multiple layers of base glass
coats and then the designs are made with
glass chunks that melt, liquid glass that
forms designs by crackling, and painting
with an oil based glass paint

-back is cleaned and sprayed with a lacquer
finish, and jewelry findings are attached

-the process is labor intensive, but the
unique designs are worth it...the artist has
very little control of the design once it is
placed in the kiln...
no two pieces are alike,  as the heat is the
artist once the piece in the kiln
