There's a fantastic Craft Cafe opened up in my town called Wendy's Workshop and last week I went along to an enamelling class. Here are my first ever attempts!

I quite like this leaf. The glass beads didn't melt as much as I would have liked but they do remind me of three little insect eggs waiting to hatch!

I wanted to make something really colourful and summery. This would have been perfect but for one of the beads that has gone a bit skew. I love the Heart feature!

This one was supposed to let the natural copper of the copper blank show through. I wanted the black and red to look like poppies.

This heart is my favourite. The enamel has pulled away from the edges a little but what the heck - I'll do better next time. I've attached this to a Claret Suede cord and used Vintaj Brass findings. I'm really pleased with the result.

I made another Wire Crochet Necklace with Red Candy Jade beads. I've got another session with Teri Howes lined up so hopefully I can produce more elaborate creations!


  1. your enamel work is gorgeous! well don with the wire crochet too! x

  2. Wow they are really great, you should be proud especially for first attempts.
    Really like the leaf one - looks like insect eggs to me too and the heart is fab.

    Also your crocheted wire is beautiful, really liking that.

  3. Love the enamel work, it's beautiful! And I really like the crochet wire, it looks so delicate ad lace like.

  5. Hi Jo, these pendants are lovely, I particularly like the poppies pendant! Lovely colours, and its inspiring me to have a go at glass fusion which I've fancied trying for a while! Thank you for sharing these!
