I made my generally bimonthly trek to the gemstone people today, and got pretty much exactly what I needed. This is a triumph of willpower, since I generally end up with MORE than I needed! They have such gorgeous stones... Anyway, the gems for several commissions are now acquired, so progress can take place.

I also heard from my absolute favorite enameling vendor: Enamelworks Supply Company. She now has a webiste- woohoo! and it is here: http://www.enamelworksupply.com . Coral carries Japanese leaded enamels that mostly play nicely with silver and that come in a delicious range of colors, plus other various bits and bobs that are valuable and fun for us enamelists. I'm really thrilled that she now has a website, and urge US enamelists to visit it and try her products- especially if you enamel on silver.

YAY!!!!!! I've been wanting her to start a web site for ages!!!

She has the most beautiful transparent colors- every serious enamelist I know swears by her.

The stuff Coral carries is FABULOUS, and I have not been disappointed with anything I've bought from her. And I'm fussy. :)

But I am a bit confused, she doesn't list any brands? all the colours are togheter! is the letter in front of the number a code for the brand?

Hmm, interesting!

She does list brands in her paper catalogs, and I'm sure she'd tell you what they are if you asked- she's very helpful.

I think the letters are codes for the type of enamel, possibly within a brand; I'm not sure.
