I went to Newport and talked to Tom Ellis at Thomson Enamels. I learned a lot. He also took me through the Museum - this is a Must see. You wouldn't believe your eyes, how enamels were and still are used in products from jewellery, pictures and vases. Some of the pieces were 100's of years old. Wow. www.thompsonenamels.com
Then off the great Madeleine Islands for a week. What a great place and wonderful people. Meet some very nice people over there and had a great supper at Denny's Diner. Thanks to Denis and his wife Leonise for the wonderful Sugar Pie. Still can't get this out of my mind. It was delicious.
The rest of this summer, I am making beads and jewellery for the fall shows.
Hope to see you there.
