Faces in Enamel

I'm painting faces with enamel again.  I have been meaning to get back to it as I have sold all of the faces I made previously. A kind patron, who admired my work this past December at a show in San Francisco, Bazaar Bizarre, has requested a ring in her size. I have spent the last few days making some faces for her to choose from.  It is not an easy process, painting with enamel, as there are many variables involved in getting a good face.   I have a large pile of not so great pieces that go along with this assortment of little beauties.  That is the price for not practicing the craft.   I have learned my lesson.

 Aren't they sweet?
