Following up on Fused Glass Projects

Last month I wrote about several fused glass techniques and projects and I thought I’d better follow-up on a few of them. First I want to thank you for all your kind comments and emails. They mean a lot to me. Also thank you for liking and enjoying my travel posts.

First: Rebecca’s Donuts – BTW I want to thank Rebecca for allowing me to make her these custom donuts. I really enjoyed making them and more importantly I love seeing her finished art piece. Below is what she made with my donuts. Isn’t it spectacular? I also gave her a gift and the picture on the right is what she made with my fused glass pendant.

My hearts – BTW I think I’m going to call these kaleidoscope. I’ve always love kaleidoscopes and these pieces are so colorful. I really love these both polished and left tumbled. For the most part I just added bails for pendants or I made them into snaps. BTW I’m keeping two of these. They are so cool. I just cut 2 more but they are going to be crosses (either pendants or pocket crosses), 1 is fire polished and 1 is left tumbled. The picture on the left is before adding the bails and snap bases. I have also kept 2 as just pocket stones because they are so cool and I just can’t decide what to do with them.

Tumbling. I so love to tumble glass. I can’t believe I waited so long to try it. The only thing is you have to do is to fill the container. The bottom two are front and back of the cabochon and bear (2 of the pieces I kept for myself)

Flowers. I made another flower and 3 more stamen. I’ve also finished 2 of the flowers.

Pressed glass: Wow did I take this technique on a ride. I took the little slumped pressed flowers and added them to different glass pieces including a photo stand, pocket vase, etc. I also made them into magnets and snaps. I am just getting started.

I also finished a couple of my stringer pendants. The top 3 are fire polished and drilled. The bottom one is tumbled and drilled.

I won’t talk about my silk screening because I already wrote posts about my butterflies and jewelry. Here are a couple of pictures I new pieces I did.

If you would like more examples of any of the techniques I create please let me know.
