Raku Leaf Ring

I had to show these beautiful pieces that I raku'd yesterday. The ring has a 3D leaf, and would be a stunning shawl pin. And what a great copper flash on the swirl pendant.
I was foolish and really burned myself on the palm of my left hand. I immediately put ice on it and kept it there until I went to bed. All night I clutched a wet paper towel while I slept. When I got up the burn was nearly healed, just a slight tenderness. Water is the cure for burns.

The high heat exposure, and smoke, scare me, but I LOVE the results!
