The Torch Fairy (Lauren Steenburn) creates jewelry by sifting layers of powdered glass (enamel) over copper pieces and torch firing them from below – utilizing a crackle effect or various stencils along with swirling the glass. By doing this, magic happens! Each piece is unique and beautiful.
Steenburn is self-taught in the art of torch fired enamel jewelry. After having long admired the work of other artists, she decided to research the practice herself and purchase her own ‘starter kit’ in 2021. Through experimentation and growth, in 2022 The Torch Fairy came to life! Steenburn loves the creative process of torch firing enamel, watching the colors and designs shift and change as fire and heat are applied.
