FUSED-GLASS JEWELRY

Early this month, I took a fused-glass jewelry class.  I have never done anything like this.  We selected glass, cut it, stacked it, etc.  We had the option of making pendants, earrings, bracelets, etc.  I made 5 pendents.  This is was relaxing and fun!  Four of them are dimensional - stacked.  The largest one is smooth.  You do this by laying a piece of glass over the whole thing, once it's put together.  They are then fired in a kiln.

Both my daughter and my daughter-in-law received these for Christmas this year.  I love to give something one of a kind and made with love.

Next time, I might try making quilt block shapes.   Hmmm............. might be hard to get the symmetry thing going on tiny pieces of cut glass.

Beautiful! I am available for adoption . Or perhaps I should just take a class myself.

Gorgeous, Pat! And hey you don't need symmetry, make an "art" quilt.
Happy New year!
