This a new Fused Glass site so please let us know what you think. Our original site is http://fused-elegance-glass-jewelry.com/.  The original site has more items and you can combine shipment.

At the beginning of the year, I promised my Fused Glass customers I was going to update our http://fused-elegance-glass-jewelry.com/ to make it easier to navigate.  Well my amazing husband found a new system to base our Fused Glass website on.

The new Fused Glass site http://www.elegantfusedglassbykaren.com/ makes it easier to search and to keep track of you’re shopping cart. It also lets us provide coupons and discounts.

Everything on the http://www.elegantfusedglassbykaren.com/ is new from our original http://fused-elegance-glass-jewelry.com/  there are no duplicates and there are over 60 new Fused Glass artwork including including pendants, spoon rests, night lights, earrings, bracelets and
much more.

So after checking out our new site  look over our original site and let me know what you think.  Our goal, is by the end of the year to transfer all the fused glass items from the original  site http://fused-elegance-glass-jewelry.com/  to the http://www.elegantfusedglassbykaren.com/. We will add new fused glass items to our Etsy and Art Fire stores.

Christmas in July – Candles

Christmas in July – Candles

July’s fused glass newsletter focuses on holiday fused glass in preparation for my glass shows.  So for this fused glass blog I thought make a couple Christmas sconces. I made two candle sconces, ironically the design is candles.             One slumped on a smaller mold so it’s a tighter curve than the standard sconce.           In addition to my fused glass Christmas candle sconces I made a beautiful leaf for fall. It’s in the setting of a dish for candles or candy....

Christmas in July – snowmen

July’s fused glass newsletter focuses on holiday fused glass in preparation for my glass shows.  So for this fused glass blog I thought make a couple of plates. I made a fused glass snowman face, it’s perfect for Christmas candy or cookies.           I also wanted to make a full fused glass snowman plate. He is quite big so he is a perfect centerpiece or for cookies.                   I didn’t want to forget about fall, so I made a fused glass fall plate....

I can make them into snaps or magnets or pendants or brooches or something else. Basically because it has a flat back I can glue them onto anything, even...

Fused Glass Lithograph – Tanya / AAE Glass

For June I have been focusing my fused glass blogs on videos Tanya Veit teaches on her AAE Glass website in her Education center.

Ok I have to show off one of my new favorite Tanya techniques. She calls it Lithograph. It involves the fiber paper I will talk about in my DYK.

For June I have been focusing my fused glass blogs on videos Tanya Veit teaches on her AAE Glass website in her Education center. I’ve blogged about several techniques including: the Glass Glo brick plate, Mosaic tile plate, the fused glass quilt plate, and several jewelry techniques. This is a pretty interesting technique. It’s layering dichroic and clear glass and it ends up very transparent. The key thing is she copper leafed the back of the pendants. The copper leaf made a complete difference in the pendants. The depth the copper...
