Enameled Jewelry



Give me metal and color and I am a happy woman. Enamels are a wonderful way to paint on metal. There are many techniques that artists can use to get the effect they want.

Some of my favorite enamellists are Harlan Butt, David Freda, Marjorie Simon and Sarah Perkins.

During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world.

I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the brooder I had built them. So, the coop started to go up. About three weeks (most of it during Spring break and then a couple of weekends following), half of a pinkie nail, and five hundred dollars later, my coop was finished and the chickens seemed to have made th…
