Painting with Fire Book Tour

What an exciting event! Barbara Lewis is launching a book tour for her new book, Torch Fired Enameled Jewelry: a workshop in painting with fire.  It seems there will be lots of opportunities to win prizes, as each jewelry artist presents their perspective on the technique.  I have been lurking reading about this technique for several months now, and am thrilled to get to hear from so many talented people on their experiences with this type of enameling.  Below is the list of participants, and the rules of the tour.  Have fun hopping, I know I am! Blessings, Shirley
