...that I am now the technical adviser for Fundaments.net. They are now carrying Thompson enamels. Jeanette Blix Ryan the owner of Fundamentals is so wonderful and sharing. I bought some of my first metal working tools from her a while back. She worked with me as I changed my mind and waffled she was patient and helped me pick the right tools and supplies that I needed. Then she became a customer of mine, so nice she purchased a pair of earrings for herself and her sister. Since we met she has become more and more intrigued with enameling. She actually took the plunge and bought a kiln. Lucky her she actually found an almost new kiln on Craigslist. Check out her blog were she has posted many of her creations: jeanetteblix.com. Here are some bangles that she made:Ok so back to being a technical adviser. It is hard to believe that I can be of any help to anyone when it comes to enameling because there is so much I feel I have to master yet. I do struggle at times. But they say about enameling it takes an hour to learn and a life time to master. So if I can help her fellow enamelist customers then I am more than pleased to. And just to give you something else pretty to look at here are a pair of earrings I made. It is my signature blend called watermelon..but with a twist. I added a touch of purple. It was actually by customer request. I really like the way it came out.Also don't forget that Jeanette and her partner Cindy Wimmer are heading a new creative retreat called ArtBLISS. Classes are filling up to don't delay.
As a bonus for those reading this post and wanting to try enameling or if you already enamel Jeanette is offering a 15% discount on Thompson enamels. Just use code Mahler 15% in the comments section of your order and she will take that amount off your enamel purchase.
