More About the Author

Barbara Lewis has a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from The George Washington University. For over 15 years she produced functional and decorative ceramics from her home studio for exhibition and sale in the Washington, D.C. area. She applies the knowledge she gained from firing gas kilns to her torch-fired enamel pieces. Her understanding of controlled over-firing and how the atmosphere of the flame produces unique effects is a personal interest. She shares this information with her students at her popular Painting with Fire Workshops, which focus on this unique immersion process of torch-fired enamel.

In her book, Barbara shares how she not only pioneered the enameling of iron beads, but developed a nifty no-solder bezel and a timesaving "heat rivet." Her work has been published in many magazines including Belle Armoire Jewelry, Handcrafted Jewelry, Bead Trends, Bead Unique, and Stringing. She has studios in Bushwood, MD and St. Petersburg, FL.

All fired up about Mastering Torch-Fired enameled jewelry! 2 Oct. 2014
By JFL - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just received my much anticipated Barbara Lewis book, Mastering Torch-Fired Enamel Jewelry: The Next Steps in Painting with Fire. I pre-ordered and was anxiously awaiting its arrival. I am relatively new to the torch-fired enamel craft and became enamored with this art form from a magazine featuring Barbara's work.

Now, I have never touched a torch. I was also nervous about the about the whole fire thing and had certainly never set fire to anything. I am a beaded jewelry designer, who happens to love metal working. After getting Barbara's first book, watching her video's available on YouTube and her website:, I was hooked.

A novice can pick up this craft and actually make something! Barbara's technique and illustrations and directions are spot on! I made beads the very first time I tried. It was amazing and I was hooked!

The projects in this book are well thought out. Very well explained, photographed beautifully and I learned new techniques! It is a great jumping off point for MY imagination and creativity!!!! What a great resource!

Doesn't get any better than this 18 Dec. 2014
By George L. Egger II - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Doesn't get any better than this! Barbara's first book was a tremendous enabler for all of us that love enameling, as well as being fun and easy to understand and with lots of really terrific projects included. THIS one is even BETTER, if you can believe it!!! If you aren't currently enameling but WANT to, or if you are enameling but only via kiln-fired or trivet-fired techniques, you will really really REALLY want to read her books, as they will teach you how to inexpensively set up so that you can quickly and easily enamel jewelry items whenever you WANT to. You can literally decide to make a piece and 15 minutes later it is FINISHED. No metal cleaning, no kiln to heat up--once you have the metal shaped the enameling takes place in only MINUTES. Try THAT by any other method! And if you are already torch-firing enamel pieces, this book will take you further down the path than you probably have imagined, and the projects included are really cool. What more can I say? BUY IT!!!

Still Learning from Barbara 8 Nov. 2014
By Lynnea - Published on
Format: Paperback
I loved her first book and learned how to enamel from it. I was lucky enough to meet her in person several years ago and I have been sharing my work with her over the years. I actually was asked to contribute a piece for this book and am published in it. I also found that once again my teacher, mentor and friend is again teaching me new ways to grow as an artist. It opens up a whole new world of creativity.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It cant get any better than this. I loved the detailed description of things that I could see in person. I will and have purchased all and any book she writes. Her books keep me focused too and remind me when I cant get to the live pictures. Barbara Lewis is the best of the best. My goal is to be able yo take any class from her so I can say thanks.
