Pyrex Pendants - New Patterns

I received a lot of unfortunately broken Pyrex from a variety of traders and people who have come to know me.  I'm really excited about the opportunity to work with so many different patterns.  I'm just going to post a bunch of pictures here, I've been so busy I'm not even sure where to start.

One of my favorites.  Since I rarely wear jewelry, it is easy for me to let these pendants go to people who will really love and wear them.

Wonderful mix of colors.

Not only American Pyrex, JAJ, Agee, Federal and Hazel Atlas glass as well.

Vintage Pyrex Shards - Pendants for the Shop

Christmas crafting just isn't happening.  I've been steadily collecting materials to craft with, but it looks like it's going to have to be Christmas in July.  My desire to work on Pyrex shards has been so strong--new colors and patterns are just too irresistible!  Here are some shards before wiring.  They are currently in my shop. (Shards are courtesy of collectors and traders who either received Pyrex broken in transit or had mishaps during use).

Vintage Pyrex Pendant - Black Rooster Space Saver

My latest Pyrex pendant. I had the good fortune of being the recipient of the shards (of an unfortunately already broken) Rooster space saver. I was so eager to to see what I could make that I changed my plans that day and started on it right after the box was delivered. This pendant is wrapped in 18K plated wire and embellished with amber, faceted black onyx and pearl.

I edited this original post because when I re-read it, it almost sounded like I received a space saver that was broken on it's way to me and THAT I could never be happy about!!  No, this one was broken in transit to someone else and that person sent me the shards.  I was happy that I got the opportunity to work with these shards.
