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

We will add new fused glass items to our Etsy and Art Fire stores.

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....

More Fused Glass Stars

In July, I made a lot of Fused glass stars and after taking Jodi’s class the first week in August I made even more. I’m not sure which are my favorites. I like the simple 5 point stars because they can be made in any color and typically take 1 firing.  The 6 pointed stars are nice too. I tried it with 2 colors too.           Jodi also taught chubby stars, some standing some hanging. I’m still working on getting my standing stars to stand consistently but I really like them. One struggle with the...

Fused Glass Spoons

Last month I blogged about my hand-painted spoon. It’s so pretty. I’m looking forward to painting more spoons.           I got so excited about my spoon, I thought I’d make a few more. Albeit this time I thought I’d make a some holiday ones. I made a snowman and a mummy fused glass spoon.                       I also made a simple fused glass spoon with frit. I like the colors. I think I may make another one but on a clear spoon blank....

Fused Glass modifications

During my August show, one of my long time customers had a request. She wanted some of my fused glass earrings changed from posts and dangles to clip-on earrings.  So I did it. I based it on whether the earrings were posts or dangles. If they were posts I put them on a finding that had a pad. If they were dangles I put them on a clip-on finding that was made for dangles. So about 1/2 were dangles and 1/2 were posts, now she has fused glass earrings that she can wear.           I’m always happy to make...

Fused Glass Painting Class – Mark Hufford

I’ve blogged about Mark Hufford many times. Mark is an outstanding painter, over the years I’ve even bought 3 of his fused glass pieces. I have all his videos, but until this past weekend I’ve never painted one of his designs.

He is an extremely giving and talented instructor. He not only taught 3 fused glass pieces. Mark...

Fused Glass Crosses

          Fused Glass Crosses, I’ve made some new fused glass crosses for the holiday season. I thought the green one was a bit simple so I added a dichroic dot.  I’ve also fused in high fire wire so the crosses can be hung. I have even more fused glass cross molds and hope to have a few more available for Christmas. As you can see I like blue and green. Let me know if you would like another color of cross.

My Daughter and Son!

          OMG I have had a crazy emotional month. First, my daughter moved into her college dorm. It’s difficult for me I miss her terribly.  I’m so happy for her, this is an exciting time of her life. Since I miss her so much I thought I’d put her picture on some glass. I had made the little girl earlier in the month, but I made a little standing picture and a coffee stirer. It they are great for my office.             In addition to my daughter, my amazingly handsome...
