Enamelling small pieces

I have found one of the most challenging parts of enamelling is figuring out how to rig the piece for firing. These pieces are very tiny (7mm and less) so they would not balance on any of the trivets we have. I also tried a material called TFS thin firing sheet that is not supposed to stick to enamel but has not worked for me.

Enamelling of the concave surface was easy enough, but the subsequent enamel on the convex surface was a problem.

As shown above, the convex surface is marred by depressions made by the material is was balancing on during firing. 
Using fine binding wire tightly wound around the posts, hanging lines could be created.

All rigged and in place and ready for firing.

Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the finished pieces. But it worked–really!
