A Labor Of Love - My Glass Creations

I decided to make it a priotiy to carve out considerable time this year to create more pieces.  My glass shard inventory has grown over the last couple years and I'm ready to concentrate on producing items for sale after two and a half years of doing no charge exchange work for the materials.  Here are some of my latest creations.  I'm very excited to be at a point in my life that I can focus on my art.

Magnet Set in Pyrex Pastels

Fire King Tulips Magnet Set

Custom Pyrex Bracelet Charms

Pyrex Key Ring

Fused Glass Pendant in Blu

I am planning to return to making fused glass pendants.  Running my glass shards exchange program took so much of my time I haven't fired up my kiln in the longest time and I miss it.

Exciting Thrift Store Find - JAJ Red Snowflake

I seem to get busier instead of slowing down.  Now that it's spring, my garden is calling me.  I made a great thrift store score recently.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this JAJ red snowflake dish stuffed in the shelf!
