That being said, I had this whole idea sketched out and then once I made my enamels, completely changed the direction and am very happy with my results. It sparked a new direction for me to work in, at least of a couple pieces.
This is the piece that changed (professional photos, coming soon). I'm happy with it. It feels much more dainty than I normally work. I'm excited about the idea of multiples and have a few additional pieces that came from this...
Multiples brooch, which will feature a lot of hollow forms, old school gold leafing (new for me), and bezel set enamels. I'm really looking forward to finishing this!
Here's a process shot- I've fused enamel to the back of the pieces 1 to 2 times in the kiln at 1500 F and fused 1 to 2 layers of white to the front... now it's time to draw and paint all my imagery!
