No Boston Cream Here; Donut Update #2
This is the final update about the new donut shaped pendants I am making.
I found the perfect sterling silver bails. They are minimalist and modern without any decorations or Schnickschnack (German for ‘knickknack’). They mirror the silver inclusions in color without overwhelming anything about the glass design, I think.
Yet, at the same time, they are sturdy and I don’t have to worry about not being able to use larger diameter cords or chains.
Now Christmas is coming up and I did need something for my mom. I’m not going to see her this year for the holidays as I usually do, so I needed something I could send her in the mail to Germany.
She is very religious and always wanted something with a cross but she isn’t into bright popping colors and a lot of Schnickschnack (there it is again). She has a couple of stone donuts already, so I knew she likes the shape. I tried to stay on the muted color side with the design I came up with. I’m going to send her both because I really don’t know about the colors and now I can only hope she likes them.

I try to create crisp edges and clear shapes in many of my pieces by cold working the glass after the fusing process. Cold working is a time consuming process in which the glass is sanded with consecutively finer and finer grid until it is shaped and the glass is completely smooth.
Many of the pendants, brooches and earrings have 99.9% pure silver inclusions and all of the wire and bails I use are sterling silver.
