Begin With Glass
Yesterday I took a field trip up to the glass supply shop I like, the Glasshopper, in search of more dichroic glass and fine silver wire.
I thought you might wonder what dichroic sheet glass looks like. And if you've never used fine silver wire for fusing to make links, you might be curious about that too.
Here's a photo of a few pieces of my dichroic glass haul. I scored some great textures and colors. They fuse up so beautifully. And the wire in the photos is 12 gauge and 18 gauge fine silver wire, for fusing projects. I was very low on fine silver wire and I've been making some links for chains. This should hold me for a while now.
Isn't that glass gorgeous, even in its raw state?
