Fusing Projects

Hi everyone....Starting to do some fusing and love working with glass.  Glass is my passion.  I am doing dichoric glass pendants, wind chimes, flower plant stakes and sun catchers.  I am starting to list them in my Etsy store.  I will take pictures today to show you.  You can go to my Facebook Page also to see them.  www.facebook.com/oregonmadejewelry

Happy 2014

Happy New Year everyone.  This is going to be a wonderful and happy 2014.   I am flame painting today in my studio and posting the findings on my Etsy store, www.etsy.com/shop/oregonmadejewelry.  You will receive 30% off total order through Januay 2014.  Grab your coffee or tea and check out my shop.

My flame painting is becoming a passion of mine.  The colors that come out of the copper is amazing.  Just by holding the flame a certain way and the air around you can also change the way your colors pop out.  I just finished this wire wrapped bracelet.  The copper bracelet has flames of different colors.  I flamed painted the washer and added my wrapped my enameled headpins.  It sits perfectly on my wrist.  I will post the bracelet later today.

Have an amazing New Year and please share this post with a friend.

Flame painting is done with only the heat of a torch. You continue to add layers and layers of heat making the colors just pop. It can be very tricky especially if there is a lot of humidity. One piece can take 30 minutes. I immediately seal the component to maintain the colors. All my components are for sale...special order..comment if you are interested in purchasing. Happy beading

Here are some flame painted copper components. I love the colors that pop out of copper.
