Sometimes, when I create fused glass jewelry I make a block of glass to cut my pieces from. In metal terms a block of metal is called ingot so I thought I’d steal the term for my glass ingots.
Anyway first I fuse various pieces of glass together. I added a lot of dichroic and various colors and take it to a full fuse. You can tell I made a lot of different ones. So I’ll be doing some serious cutting and drilling soon.
After they are fused I use templates (below) to trace shapes on them. I can also drill for my snap jewelry.
I’ll post again when I cut the pieces into fused glass jewelry. There are some amazing pieces I can’t wait to finish them.
If you would like to see more of my fused glass work please refer to my website Elegant Fused Glass by Karen.
