I took some time on Saturday morning, before I got onto something else, or got distracted, and cut some glass for the kiln.
I put some colorful dichroic glass on some clear backgrounds, and some onto black, and fused them to make faux gemstones.
I plan to combine some with wire settings, to create special settings. And to combine some with pewter, to enhance the bling level and add some color. They have an inner glow, and change color and sparkle as light hits them.
I'm wondering if any of you would like some rough cabochons to use, just the fused glass.
Another thing I do sometimes is grind a channel around the outside of the glass cabochon and use wire wrapping to make a little dangle. What do you think?
I like to use them to give a special organic and fancy look to the components. Shiny shiny, pretty pretty.
I think I'm part magpie, collecting shiny bits.
