Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry combines beading and wire-working techniques with the intense beauty of torch-fired enameled beads. Metal becomes your canvas as you learn the basics of enameling with a torch, then dive into 22 exquisite pieces, ranging from quirky “cattywampus” earrings to ethereal pendants to delicate multi-stranded necklaces. Find out how easy it is to create unique and colorful enamel pieces in this innovative, comprehensive guide to the world of torch-fired enameling.

Review :

Featured Project by Barbara Lewis: Harem Bracelet

I can't decide if this is a bracelet or an anklet. It can only be an anklet if you're willing to break out into dance when you wear it! Whatever you decide, this piece is fun and easy to make. It's perfect for the hodgepodge of leftovers on your worktable--a "bench collection" of sorts. Don't dwell on planning your design; if you go with the flow, it will truly reflect you and your work.

Preparing Fabric for Cutting Bias Strips

Establish the straight of grain: Use scissors to place a snip into the selvedge edge of woven fabric, about 1" (2.54cm) from the cut edge. (The selvedge edges are the two finished edges of the fabric as it comes from the factory.) Tear the fabric at the snip.

Establish the bias grain: Place the fabric on a flat surface. Pick up one corner of the fabric and bring the end diagonally across the fabric so that one torn edge of the fabric will rest on top of one selvedge edge of the fabric. Press the fold with an iron.

Instructions

  1. Use the directions at left to establish the straight of grain and the bias grain for 1/4 yard (0.23m) of woven fabric. Cut through the ironed fold in the fabric.  
  2. Measure and mark 1" (2.54cm) from the cut edge along the length of the fabric. Cut a 15" (38.1cm) bias strip.
  3. Spray adhesive on a 1⁄4" × 7" (6mm × 17.78cm) piece of foam tubing. Starting at one end and working across, wrap the bias strip around the foam.
  4. Enamel four 12mm corrugated beads: one in white with lime yellow on top, one in white with turquoise on top, one in pumpkin and one in clover. Enamel two 17mm flower bead caps in pumpkin and clover.
  5. Thread a 4" (10.16cm) segment of 22-gauge sterling silver wire through a solid jump ring and make a wrapped loop. Thread a bead cap, an enamel bead and another bead cap onto the wire.
  6. Make a wrapped loop flush against the bead cap, but before finishing it, attach a small rhinestone dangle link. Wrap the loop with the excess wire. Create six dangles. You can choose to add different enamel and manufactured findings to the dangles as desired. Go wild!
  7. Wrap a bundle of ribbon and fiber strands around the tubing, starting 1" (2.54cm) from the end. Tie the ends in overhand knots to secure.
  8. Slide a dangle onto the bracelet. Wrap another ribbon and fiber bundle after the first dangle to keep it from sliding on the bracelet. Continue sliding on dangles and wrapping bundles on the bracelet, stopping 1" (2.54cm) from the end and ending with a ribbon and fiber bundle.  
  9. Pierce the end of the foam bracelet with 3" (7.62cm) of 19-gauge annealed steel wire. Fold the ends up, keeping one end longer than the other. Wrap the shorter wire end around the longer wire end.
  10. Thread an enamel bead cap onto the wire. Trim the excess wire and make a simple loop flush against the bead cap. Attach an 11mm solid jump ring to the loop.
  11. Repeat Steps 8 and 9 on the other side of the bracelet, but attach a lobster clasp before closing the simple loop.

From the Author :

I am so proud of the work I did for this book!  The "immersion" technique of torch-firing is groundbreaking!  Can you imagine enameling a bead in 40 seconds instead of 40 minutes?  How about enameling pendants in the same amount of time, but also embedding watch gears and millefiori wafers while the pendant is still on the mandrel.  Easy, quick, and extremely affordable! No $500 kilns required.  For about $100 you'll have the torch, the bead pulling station (the workhorse of the system), several enamels, copper pieces and metal beads, mandrels, clamps ... everything you need for a beginning enamel studio.
Besides the enameling part, you'll learn how to make a no-solder bezel and a rivet that requires no hammer!  There's some cool fold-forming and metalworking projects that use simple tools ... a pair of metal snips, a two-hole punch, and a hammer.  It doesn't get more basic than that but wait 'til you see the jewelry you can create!  Welcome to my world!  I hope you'll join me here.  If you want to check out the torch-fired enamel scene, please join me at paintingwithfire.ning.com, where it's all about torch-firing. Also, please check out the website for my book:  torchfiredenameljewelry.com.  :-)  Barbara
