Enamel Dragon

I loved working on this piece. This was another first, as I had never worked with enamel before. I came up with so many drafts during the design phase--some geometric and abstract, others flowery and... girly. But then I decided to tackle a dragon design, and I just had to go with it. The really difficult part is bending the wires in the exact shape that you desire, and making those tricksy things stay in place! Adding to the challenge was the fact that I choose to use the circular base, which is not flat but concave. Just getting all the wires cut, bent, and set in place took a great deal of time. After that, the enameling was a lot of fun, and I used a considerable variety of colors. I just wish I could've gotten a better picture of it. Medium: enamel, brass, silver
