I’ve blogged about Mica before and even wrote a DYK about it. I love mica, it’s a mineral and actually comes in a rock form but most people think of it as a powder. Mica is used in cosmetics and electrical components. For these pieces I used mica (gold, copper, silver, pearl, and rose gold) I got from Jodi (glass with a past). The first picture is my little heart mica’s I also added a bit of flakes of each color too. The second picture I sandblast the...

As I’ve mentioned recently I’ve had a lot of custom fused glass orders. Here is another custom fused glass order I finished recently.           I really like these spoon-rests. I made 12 fused glass spoon-rests for a great customer of mine.           It was not as easy as it sounds though. Some were too large to fit the stand and some were too small.           Some totally messed up. The...

I’ve blogged about my fused glass flower pockets before.           This time I thought I’d make some fused glass flower hangers, which instead of sitting they hang. The first fused glass hanging pocket, is a triangle. I fused some vitrigraph on top and used stainless steel chain to hang it. The second picture is what it would look like with flowers.           Here are two more fused glass hanging pockets....

In April of 2017 I did an entire newsletter on Creative Paradise’s molds. I love their creative paradise’s texture molds. I used some different colors in my fused glass mantle sconces. This first one is iridized white, lady in the woods. She’s beautiful and she looks amazing with the light behind her.           This fused glass mantle sconce is a beautiful light green with gold dragonflies. With the light behind it, it looks even...

Last month I receive a request to make some purple fused glass mushrooms for a great customer of mine. I made these with a screen-melt technique, which is one of my favorite techniques. This first picture is trying out the recycled glass bottoms. I like them, but I thought sandblasting them would be nicer.           So the next two pictures are of the mushroom tops on sandblasted recycled glass bottoms.           I wanted to...

It’s spring time so I made some pretty fused glass wind chimes. I made them with brass chain, stainless steel chain and copper wire.  I think they are all pretty cool I even took some to my store in Denver.                 This fused glass piece is a bit different. I made the light house on a textured mold then instead of having 3 chimes I just have one, but it’s a dolphin. I think it’s beautiful. It can hang inside...

February’s Fresh From the Kiln I made a fused glass Spirit Tablet with a feather. I liked it so much that I made another one. The problem is I can’t decide which fused glass piece to put in the middle. They are all made of glass and added gold. The seahorse, according to what is my spirit animal a seahorse as a power animal provides “safe guidance through rough emotional waters”.           I also like these two shells, the...

I’m so in spring mode, albeit here in Colorado we don’t always have a spring. Today was beautiful, but tomorrow it could be a blizzard.  Anyway, I just wrote a blog about my fused glass mushrooms and last month I wrote about fused glass garden stakes. So while I was making my mushrooms and the garden stakes I came a cross some fused glass butterflies I made a while back and decided I should make them into night lights similar to my fused glass mushrooms. This...

I’ve blogged about my fused glass mushrooms before but I just love them and thought I’d make some more. Some have clear bottoms, some have sandblasted bottoms and I made one with a green bottom. The bottoms are all recycled bottles. They come with fairy lights to make little night lights. So many different colors and techniques.                     I also made some little bases, it reminds me of the old time...

As I mentioned in my last blog I have been finishing up some fused glass pieces. I also finished a lot of fused glass snaps. I made some normal size snaps for pendants and some small ones for earrings and rings.           I also made some big fused glass snap pendants. I love the big ones, they are so much fun to wear.           I also use mad some snaps with with concrete. Now these snap into jewelry, but the glass is set...

Just thought I’d show some of my finished fused glass pieces.  Because I was TDY (military term for Business trip) this month and working on production pieces I didn’t have as much time to experiment and play as much as I normally like to do.  But I did get to finish some fused glass pieces. First I finished some fused glass pendants. Hearts, Holey pendants, some with decals, some dichroic, etc.                  ...

I have never been a big winter person. So I’m excited about starting to get ready for spring. I made some fused glass flowers a while back but never had a chance to finish them. In preparation for Spring I decided to finish them and I’m so glad I did. They look great! I added the the fused glass centers and the steams.                     Sorry the pictures are a bit blurry, they were moving a bit. I probably...

Anyone who follows my newsletter knows my amazing son and his girlfriend had a beautiful daughter on the 1st of January, Mzia is my first grandbaby. From the moment David told me I was ecstatic. Madi and I were actually in town when she was born and got to see her while she was still in the hospital. I’m in heaven. She’s so beautiful and seeing David with her just brings tears to my eyes. Anyway, I made some fused glass with her pictures. I just love looking at...

Last month I made some fused glass mirrors, I enjoyed making them so much I thought I’d make a few more. My next blog is about fused glass dots. I normally use small dots but for this mirror I decided I’d use all sizes. I really like it. I covered up the mirror part but they are pretty awesome. I like the dot mosaic one, it’s so much fun, but I also like the normal ones. I’m anxious to see what ya’ll think of them. The one on the left is a...

Recently I took an online webinar about donuts. It was a fascinating class and I love the technique. I thought I’d show you a couple. There are many ways to make fused glass donuts but this is a unique way and I like them very much.           Sadly you can’t truly see how amazing these are, they are large statement pieces. Some have transparent sections that make them even more versatile.           In making the...
