Fused Glass Scenic Pendants

I have had many fused glass instructors over the years and Tanya Veit from AAE Glass is one of my favorites. The first class I took from her when she was still doing traveling classes, It was mind blowing! I’ve taken numerous classes in her studio in Florida and watched countless videos she’s created. I’ve met some of my best friends through Tanya’s classes. The picture on the left is one of the classes I took that has some of the best friends I’ve made; Kate, Julie, me, Lynne, Diane, Pam, Tanya, & Melinda! Love you ladies! The picture on the right is a picture of Tanya and me.

Anyway recently Tanya put out a new video (“My Legacy Jewelry Video” and it was incredible. There were 12 projects in this video. I haven’t had a chance to make them all but here are some of my favorites. I won’t show the process pictures, but isn’t it beautiful. One of my favorites is the “solar flare”. I added a silk screened tree to one of them, but I don’t feel they need any embellishment because they are beautiful on their own. The 1/2 moon in the bottom picture is the one I kept and made it into a snap.

Another of my favorites is the Scenic Pendants. I made several of these because I just love them and they are so versatile. The first 3 are screen printed and the second row – pictures on the left are decals, the picture on the right a mix of screen printed and decals. These pendants are truly pieces of art.

This technique is another one of my favorites. I can’t go into detail about it but I just think it’s beautiful. I used horses (screen printed) and a horse (decal). Can you guess which is the decal? I can’t wait to make more of these but I’m out of one of the supplies right now.

This technique is really unique and there are so many points to this technique that I can’t go into, the design is screen printed. These are so much prettier in person than what you can see in this photo.

This is a cool technique. I’ve always loved waterfalls so this is a great technique. I plan on making a few more of this design.

I also made some pendants with portions of the techniques, but didn’t put decals or screen printed designs on them. I think they are beautiful and don’t need embellishment. What do you think?

The pieces below I want to add decals or screen prints, but I’m curious what designs y’all would like to see? Do you have a favorite animal or design you’d like me to add to these cabochons?

I want to hear from you. So I have two questions for you. Which is your favorite technique? And which is your favorite shape. I know what you are going to say… which is your favorite? I’ll make a deal with you, I’ll tell you if you tell me. I look forward to hearing what y’all think of these techniques.

BTW one of my favorite classes Tanya made happen was our trip to Bullseye in Portland when I got to actually make glass! The bottom picture is of Tanya making glass!
