"On a separate note, TFEJ has been named the #1 Craft book of 2011 on Amazon!
What?!!! Holy Cow! I'm still floating on Cloud 9. Where is Cloud 9 anyway? Wherever it is, I'm on it! I'm grateful to all of you for your encouragement over these many months. I'm glad the book is doing what I intended it to do, which was to encourage you to try this incredible technique. The "immersion process" of torch firing has taken on a life of its own ... no doubt about it.
I've written the first page of Book No. 2 ... actually it's the book concept. It will thoroughly explore enameling decorative techniques and color through the creation of jewelry. Having taught for the past couple of years and moderating the ning for nearly the same amount of time, I've been in a position to see what inquiring minds want to know. I'm thinking that writing Book No. 2 may be easier than Book No. 1 ... kind of like having a baby!
