Chilbo (Korean Enameling)

 One of the things I love about my weekly visits to Nan's is never knowing who may walk through the door.  Her shop is on a side street where you find apartments along with shops and restaurants.  There is always someone walking by whether it's a government official or a student.

Sometimes Nan's sister stops in and she is quite the pistol!  She always has a bright smile and now knows how to say, "Hi Becky!" in English.  She lives in a small apartment building right across the street from Nan's shop.

This week, the lady who I helped with the rice cakes stopped by with some treats.  She stayed for quite a while and even helped Nan sand some finished pieces.

 I was busy working on these four plates.  I still have to put the finishing outlining on them and paint the faces which I will do next week.
I also saw these gorgeous pendants and had to buy a few.  She told me she was getting ready for Buddha's birthday which is in a couple of weeks.  Tomorrow I have another foam class and then it's off to Seoul to visit my favorite maedeup shop.


  1. You are having too much fun, Becky! Love seeing what you are up to and I need to comment more often - I promise. Can't wait to see the finished project. Have fun tomorrow!!hugs, ~Molly
