A whole lot of fused glass and then some …

A whole lot of fused glass, Part 1

Wow, my first post!

Let me start by introducing my original line of abstract, contemporary fused glass jewelry.

I start out with Bullseye art glass.

My main focus is the colors. I spend probably too much time just holding different color combinations together until one appeals to me.

Secondly, I create areas of both transparency and opacity in one piece of glass. It adds another point of interest and gives much more of a three-dimensional effect.

Then, a simple loop of fine silver (99.9% pure silver) is hammered and added to the design. It creates a focal point and a direction to the piece and, especially on the darker glass, provides a fantastic splash of contrast.

The outcome is a straightforward, modern and bold look that goes great with sleek, eligant dresses or , like in my case, with jeans and sweat/teashirts. Personally, I like to wear the pendants on a very short chain or black cord. But to highlight certain female features, a longer chain might be in order.
