Frit Happens Challenge Piece

Well, I managed to finally get this piece finished. It's not the best photograph, but I'm so pleased with the finished piece, I couldn't wait to show it!! The challenge topic was Autumn. I also thought it would be interesting to take stage by stage photos so, here's a few of the piece in progress

This pendant is totally different to what I usually make, but I quite enjoyed if for a change, and that's what challenges are about isn't it!! What it did do for me, is make me realise how much I like enamelling work. I don't do it as often as I would like and having a play yesterday was great fun.
Must get on with "proper" jobs today though!

Thanks everyone. I think I'm going to do more of the in progress pictures Elaine. I find a lot of people don't realise how drab or messy a piece can look while you're working on it!!! One of the hardest things about metal clay is imagining it silver and shiny, when it's just a grey lump of clay!
