Wow! That is amazing. Did the customer just ask for a feline pendant, or did she order a specific design?

All the customer said was "I want a cat pendant for my daughter" And she left the designing part up to me. Lol, she said her daughter absolutely loved it though.

Indeed it is. There's not a greater feeling in the world for an artist like myself.

So how hard is enameling on silver? Had some people tell me you had to do a bunch of extra work like getting a coat of copper over it to make it work.

hmm, not sure what kind of enameling they're using. The way I do it is pretty simple. You just mix the color of enameling you want with a hardener, put it in a high temp oven for a short time, and let it cool over night.

I'm wondering if their information is just old and enamels have changed over the past 20 or 30 years :p There's a few ideas I have that would work out with enamel, and now that I've got myself and oven I'd be able to do it.

If the information you've received about enameling is over 20 years old, then it should be safe to assume the methods have changed since then.
