Hi, Anne! Thanks for the friend request! I cruised your photos this morning; so enjoy looking at your work! I wear my little earrings often and always get nice comments. Hope you are well, too. I give my last final exam tomorrow and then it's all over but the grading -- hooray for summer in the studio!
Hi Anne, Thank you for the kind words! Graphite was the focus of my thesis in school. I fell in love with the physical quality of it, and that it could also make marks. I've tried using it in enamels a couple of times, and it's interesting. I like that it becomes permanent in the enamel. Your enamels are gorgeous! I particularly love the settings.

Getting a bigger one than you need is better then one that is too small, and the Less bends in your duct work the better, and if you have to have a bend, two 45 degree angles is better then one 90. Strait up to the roof is the best. Contact me again if you need to. I'll have more time in the next few weeks. -deb
