SHINING stars


I showed photos earlier of the glass ready for the kiln. I let it cool after firing, ground the edges and created wire scrollwork to turn them into small glass pendants or pairs for earrings.


I can see them on either side of a clasp, or as part of a chain. I put some of them next to the cast pewter and they go together really well.


Some of them have one loop on one side, and three on the other. That would be great for attaching chains or wire wrapped beads, to make a bracelet.

I plan to fire some more really soon, and let them cool all day, so I'll have a surprise in the kiln when I return at the end of the day.

Love these! Especially that pair at the bottom.

Thanks, Rosanne. I can picture them attached to a clasp on a bracelet, with three strands coming off either side, maybe chain or possibly pearls. I love the look of glass, especially dichroic, it's magical when it's melted.

These are great! I love how you are incorporating the metal and glass!

Thank you, Beth Ann. I wanted them to look really old, like jewelry my grandmother had from the 1920's with the faux gemstones, really swanky and swash. I'm raring to put them together with the pewter and some strands of pearls, I love that royalty look in jewelry!

Love the contrast between the metal and the sparlies. I can see all sorts of possibilities with these.

Lynn those pieces remind me of the French Quarter. Great pieces!

OOOhhh, French Quarter, I love it. I need to let that idea stew a bit, I can see fleur de lys, maybe ... hmmmm
