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.

Fused Glass Buddha

Fused Glass Buddha

A while back I got a great mold from Bonny Doon (Laurie Spray). I took a fabulous class from her (vitrigraph) and bought several molds from her. I got a Buddha mold but the first 2 times I used it, my pieces didn’t turn out so well. But my next too turned out beautifully. I was even able to take it to my most recent craft show. The mold allows for a 3rd eye to be added, however I displayed it without actually adding it but you can still see it.  The 3rd eye is believe to represent a state of enlightenment. I’ve made two so far,...

New fused glass

I wanted to have some new fused glass pieces for my last 3 shows of the year. I made some new snaps, both small and medium; I will say several sold during my liberty show.           I made some new fused glass crosses.           I made some new fused glass trees.  I like not just making them green.           I also made some fused glass brooch pins.           What I always tell my people I love making new fused glass, so if there is something...

With every purchase

I love making soap dishes and sushi dishes so I thought I’d do a little something special for my customers that buy either one. If you buy a fused glass sushi dish from me I’ll give you a set of chop sticks.  It’s kind of funny I know because most people don’t really use these dishes for sushi but it doesn’t really matter.           If you buy a fused glass soap dish from me I’ll give you a bar of soap. Again it’s kind of funny because my soap dishes can also be used as a...

A good home – for Fused Glass Art

I love all my fused glass pieces. Each piece I make is special and has a special place in my heart. But every now and then there is an extra special piece. I made such a piece and at the Holly Berry Art Show it went to a good home. So much work went into this piece and the price reflected it. In this day in age of buying production work some people don’t see the value of true art. But some special people do. I met some wonderful people at Holly Berry Art Show a few bought my beautiful aspens, jewelry, and other art pieces. Albeit the...

Fused Glass boxes

I’m sure I’ve mentioned that I try to take 3 fused glass classes every year. I love learning new techniques and sharing the love of glass!  In October I took a class with Alyssa Oxley she’s known for her fused glass boxes.           We made 3 fused glass projects in class. I enjoyed making them but they take a lot of measuring. This is my small box. I made my lid a bit big. I think I will trim it down so it fits the box a bit better.           My next box is bigger and I...

Fused Glass trees

Fused Glass trees

In July I made a standing tree so I thought I’d make a few more. I’m not sure if I like the face more or the traditional ornament tree. I’d love to hear what ya’ll think.           This picture shows my first standing tree (with a face),  a standing tree with ornaments, and the green with red dots is an ornament. I love that the trees are so versatile.           If you would like to see more of my fused glass work please refer to my website Elegant Fused Glass by Karen....
