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.  ...

Symbols in Gold on Fused Glass

Posted by on Dec 19, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

              In my recent blog I discussed both symbols and decals (including a youtube video) and I thought I’d share a few more. I have several gold decals (Kanji, Cross, Star of David, etc.). Kanji is the Japanese pronunciation of Chinese characters that are used in the modern Japanese writing system. When I was in Japan we really enjoyed the Japanese calligraphy so I really love these 22k gold,  ultra luster Kanji decals. They...

Colors of Fused Glass

Posted by on Nov 28, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

            I use various colors of Glass in my fused glass artwork. But if there is a color you want and don’t see please let me know. Color is all around us. We see it all the time. The primary colors of light are red, green, and blue. Color psychology affects our lives in so many ways, yet we often do not realize the impact of our color choices. This impact of the many colors in our environment is usually not conscious. Color is a form...

Posted by on Oct 27, 2013 in Blog | 2 comments

            I enjoy making fused glass and I enjoy making custom fused glass. In most of my blogs, I mention I would be happy to create custom fused glass artwork.  I have created custom fused glass pieces for several people. Of course, typically I am so excited about it I forget to take pictures so what is  on my custom page is not close to what I have custom made.

What are Millefiori & Murrine? And how are they used with Fused Glass

Posted by on Sep 26, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

                In some of my Fused Glass work you may see the words Millefiori or Murrine and you may not know what they are so I thought I’d write a blog about both. The Millefiori is an ancient technique (first appeared in the Mideast more than 4,000 years ago) and was revived in Venice in the sixteenth century and in France and England in the nineteenth century. Millefiori in Italian stand for a thousand flowers...
