Finished new "STUFF"

The clock was fun to make. The silver jewelry was also fun.
The bracelets were made of 20 gage Pure Silver. The set was a new color dichroic glass that came in a sample pack.

I'm so sad!

Because my cat decided to chase a bug on the outside of the screen in the window and he knocked the grid out of the window and the vase on the previous blog fell into this little beauty and smashed it to smithereens. So I have all this scrap 96 coe glass to use up in other pieces. plus the footing there. My husband said now I need to go back to Vegas and take another class and make another bowl or 2 or 3...My response was WHEN????? Yeah!!!!!

Blown glass in Vegas

I made the fall stained glass and fused painted piece on the left.

We just got back from a trip to Vegas and I made some more blown glass things. Here's a vase that I just love on the right.

Here is the vase that I had made and donated to the Palms and or to Hugh Heftner and the Playboy Club at the top.

The silver was reticulated for the purple/blue one. It turned out so cool.
The square one is also very cool the colors are really fun.

Here is a small 1 3/4" round pendant type piece it was fired at least 5 times and I love the way it turned out. It looks like the state of Michigan is floating through the clouds . Maybe I did that on purpose!!!!!!! I think it is too big for a pendant but don't quite know what to make it into! Maybe a pin!

Plain and Simple

This is a really cool plain and simple piece. The sterling silver is so shiny. The pendant was fun to make and set.

And another piece of jewelry!!!

This little beauty is 2 1/2" long and 1" wide. Made of sterling silver and dichroic glass. It turned out so pretty!

More just out of the kiln!

This little bowl sat as a flat piece for a long time. The picture is not real great. It has irridized glass where the clear is.... so it's very pretty.

This little plate was made as a candle holder. It really is a nice piece and has irridized glass on the top and bottom so the bottom is cool also.

The little boat platter was made using the "New Dichro slide" for the flowers.

New pieces made with PMC

These little beauties were made using PMC clay that when fired turn to Pure Fine Silver. My heart one would have had to be cast to get the same results if PMC was not available. The two with glass in them were fired in a kiln with the glass in place. The other one without the glass was torch fired. I may take one more step with the one that was torch fired, and add some contrast by using liver of sulpher. I'll post the results later.

The paperweight was made in my blown glass glass class in Vegas this past March. .....3 colors inside, nice and wispy. I just love this one.

A new technique!

Made using powders and stencils using techniques learned in Vegas at the Glass Expo this year. New to me anyway, I know lots of people have been using powders for a long time but I just started this and this is my first application.

Silver and purples!

This is a different way for me to go....I really like the purple and the blue together since I am a real purple kinda gal. Blue is a favorite of mine also and so the 2 colors together are great.

A New Piece

I designed the stand and my metal guy made it for me....It's powder coated and all...I love how it looks altogether. The piece is a high fire that was made in a class and combined with the stand now it's a finished piece.

Another new one!

Just finished this one tonight!

Copper, Silver, and Dichro

I made this pendant in class and I really love it. The center is clear dichroic glass and it changes color with the light that shines on it....think of it with a black would really pop..... may have to do something else with that thought.......

Where's the soap?

My first soap dish.....not to bad....It was something small to make and the shape is kinda curvy. I didn't quite know how the shape would turn out.
