Twice Electroformed and Enameled 
 You have heard of twice-baked potatoes? This is where you bake a potato, remove its insides, add goodies to it, and bake it again. Well, in this presentation I am going to share a technique I have been working on for a while now.  It involves electroforming organic elements twice. Once before enameling and once after.  Once a component is electroformed it can be enameled like any copper shape.

Glass and Metal: A Perfect Match!

Metal has long been a dance partner with glass in my creative world, starting with my use of metal components in simple jewelry construction, to collaborative pursuits using traditional metalsmithing, to my exploration of glass on wire, and with electroforming. Like Fred Astaire to Ginger Rogers, the properties of metal, often thin yet strong, can be so complementary to the light shifting allure of glass. Sometimes it plays a supporting role (literally) to glass, and sometimes it rises to the occasion to shine right alongside our favorite medium as a visual design component.  Both a bead maker and a jewelry designer, I am always thinking about how my glass components will ultimately be used. How do I engineer the metal and glass to work together?  How does hole size affect the usability of my beads?  How do I decide what gauge and type of wire to use in my headpins and charms, and what does that mean for the jewelry designers who use them?  How do I take a simple glass component and transform it using electroforming? Using the framework of my 18 year creative journey with glass, I will explore the many ways that metal has enhanced my glass work, and the subtle ways that working with these two materials affects my work rhythm and process.
I will be demonstrating making a complex glass headpin on a wire loop which serves as the base for my totem pendants.
