More fused glass

I really spent a lot of time at the glass workshop leading up to Christmas.  Not only was it a bit slower for me in December, but I also was commissioned to do a window vase in sea glass colors and wanted also to experiment making the Christmas tree ornaments.

Here are some pictures of some glass pieces I did along the way:

That is a picture of a square of fused glass that I did.  I had no particular vision in mind about what to do with it, and I still am not sure.  Magnet, maybe?  Not sure, but I do like how it turned out.  Here it is from a head-on view:

Here were a couple initial concepts for the sea glass window vase I was commissioned to do.  I love how this one came out:

I was pretty surprised when the person didn’t like it, but she was wanting more of a cross motif, something I didn’t know until I showed her some first pieces.  Whatever the case, I thought it was absolutely beautiful and was content to own it myself, until it was purchased by my aunt as a gift for a friend who is hard to shop for.

I also made this piece, which I like, but wish was a little more bold — sea glass colors can be a little too subtle for my tastes:

It is pretty in a very delicate way.  Here is a glamor shot of the two of them, done by my excellent husband:

    I would say it is about 2″ square, which is pretty big to me…since I don’t really like to wear jewelry much larger than 3/4″. But, I do know that I err on the side of delicate vs. chunky jewelry!

    How big is the glass square? Maybe you could have someone do some wire wrapping and turn it into a necklace. I may know some people who do that (I think) and depending on how big or chunky you like your jewelry I think it’d be a lovely necklace!
