New enamel Beads and Links

I took Barbara Lewis enameling class at the Las Vegas Glass Expo. What a fun class. I came home and have been enameling every thing copper. Had a happy accident with some 30ga copper sheet metal. It was too thin for what I wanted to use it for. So I cut triangles and rolled on a mandril and added enamel. What do you think?
It was hard work on the hands as 30ga is stiff. But I think they came out cool. Next I made links for bracelets or necklaces.
Then I used glass decals for my enameled pendants and it work great.
