The Joan Bazzel Workshop


This page will be a sample of WIP….work in process….and a series of short descriptions about the making as it takes place. It’s likely the images will not be edited, until the finished product. Sometimes, I work on several projects during the course of time, so you might see a different one on each post.


Early days….a selection of materials laying around my bench….very interesting possibilities here. The head was made in stages with leftover epoxy clay, and I like it! The “body” is scrap wood with colored aluminum overlay….nice burnt screen for a coat, old pewter buttons for appendages, ribbon, faux fur, what fun!

Macbeth act 5 scene 1….?

After one failed attempt at epoxy-clay hands, I opted for a more user-friendly style.

The pendant “Abraxas” will be holding….counter clockwise from right; the fold-formed copper, possible designs & color choices, test pieces for colors, finished enamel pendant before setting.

Thought about changing the title to “Dalcon Shield”….but who would know?

This is a current post about my entry “Lady of the Sea”….just click on it!

Lady of the Sea

“Lady of the Sea” is a large enamel pendant in a hand fabricated setting embellished with semi-precious beads and natural pearls.
