St Elmo - Colorado Ghost Town

Plus the disappointing thing is they there were cars parked downtown, there wasn't other places to park so it makes since. There is a store and hotel …

For my did you know this month I want to get y’all excited about my upcoming shows (see dates above) so I want to show off some of my new fused glass pieces that I’ll be bringing.

As you know my pieces are one of a kind so if you see something you like let me know. Or if you want something custom let me know.

Flowers & succulents - I have large casted flowers, wall flowers, and so much.

This is a beautiful piece. I haven't decided if these two should be bowls or put a hanger on the back for hanging on the wall.

Here are my 5 little fused glass succulents. I think they are pretty cool. I like having them in the bowl.

These are tiny little fused glass slurry flowers.

Fused glass Snaps - Large, medium, and small: OK y’all know I made tons of fused glass snaps, large, medium and small. If you have my snap jewelry wow are you in for a shock at all the choices.

I just love my fused glass mushroom lights.

I think my fused glass nightlights are awesome they are little pieces of functional art and no pun intended they really light up a wall.

---

I made several new types of fused glass mirrors this year, I’m so curious to see if y’all like them as much as I do.

---

Ikebana - Thanks again to Jo for encouraging me to make some fused glass flower ikebana vases. I had made a lily pad and Jo said it would be nice if I made flowers into vases and I did and I’m so so glad. These are pretty big so I’ll probably only put 1 out at a time. Which is your favorite?

Carrds - Again this is a new product for me but I think they make great gifts. I have a few made up but I’m also bringing some cards and we can build just the perfect one for you with a fused glass poker guard, pendant, cross, etc)
