In order to make this piece, I first take copper pendants and soften the edges, shape the metal and then clean it up. I use powder enamel that is then fired in a 1400 degree Kiln until the surfaces are smooth and completely covered. Then I use images that I've made or collected over the years and make my own decals (like a water slide kids tattoo), that I fire on to the enamel surface. This makes the image permanently bonded to the enamel. This is a long and complicated process and I hope this will help you to appreciate how special these enamels are.
