A few weeks ago when I was up in Philly for Bead Fest Wire I had one of the best days ever sitting in the Painting with Fire workshop by Barbara Lewis and her torching & training team/family. I was a little scared to go bigger than my little butane torch so a little MAP gas tank was overwhelming at first...but, after a few hours there in front of it spinning my own enameled goodness, I was in love! I now have the torch at home, have only burned one whole in the carpet, and am scheduled for another class with Barbara in July.
Enough about that...this post is about one of Barbara's big successes and a giveaway she's offering on her blog to help celebrate. Her brand new book called "Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry: A Workshop in Painting with Fire" just got listed for pre-orders on Amazon! I can't even imagine the thrill of seeing all that hard work out there for anyone to see.
And here are the beads you can win--picture these in any color you love! Check out Barbara's blog for more details.
Plus, be ready for later on when the book's released...I'm going to be a part of a design team working with some of the projects and techniques in the book to really show off the drama!
