A Splash of Colour

I love adding colour to my work and sometimes it does not need a lot to make your work really stand out from the crowd and if you are lucky catch the eye of a potential customer.

I made these earrings above recently and they all have a little enamel, but just a bit of resin would work equally as well. There are lots of different ways to add colour including Keum Boo, prismacolor pencils and patinas so get thinking! 

Even one simple colour in the middle of a piece can make all the difference like the enamelled ones below.

So why not give it a go and add a bit of colour to your life ;-)

Have fun....


  1. Wow, those are beautiful! I love the way you did the color.

  2. I love color with all its shades and yours are truly beautiful. Wow.

  3. Greetings!

    I am new to metal clay; I'm excited and I need to admit, a wee bit nervous, so much that even though I have gotten all the materials I need (including kiln)I am terrified to start; afraid I will mess up and ruin the clay I have now...silly right? What advice can you give me to help me get over this fear?

    I am very happy that I found your site, blog and plan on getting a subscription to your mag...thanks in advance...
