For today’s blog I wanted to write about one of my new fused glass obsession. It’s called Fused glass pebbles.
I took a fused glass boot camp class from one of the best fused glass artists / instructors I know. Her name of course is Tanya Veit. I’ve blogged about Tanya many times, I adore her, she’s so talented, giving, beautiful, vivacious, and so many other adjectives I could fill a book. Anyway I’ve taken numerous classes with her, bought every video she has (just bought her new one!), and even bought the magazines she’s published in.
In addition to the videos she sells she also produces a free fused glass video every couple months. They are awesome because you get to see and hear her amazing personality. I’m losing focus (clearly I love Tanya) about what this blog is about.
As I mentioned the pebbles began in a boot camp class and we made a tower with them. I love my fused glass pebble tower so much it’s in my living room so I can stare at it whenever I want. When my husband suggested I sell it because it’s so beautiful I said NO!
Anyway a few months ago Tanya released a video about the fused glass pebble technique using the technique in a different manner e.g., jewelry and bowls. I loved it and have been making them ever since. The possibilities and colors are endless. I love them because they are so organic and each one is so different. Here are just a few examples:
I also love making them into my fused glass snap jewelry.
And of course the fused glass pebbles don’t have to be used just for pendants. I’ve made wine stoppers, purse hangers, security chains and hair bands!
Let me know what you think of my fabulous fused glass pebbles.
