31  COLOR COLOR COLOR! (or, I've got it bad..Spring Fever, that is!) ( 2 pics ) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: February 23, 2008 10:58:12 AM
Ok ya. 

This happens every year at this time.  Michigan winters are so brutal.  I need bright, happy, cheery flowers, and I need them NOW!

I made these pendants out of clear glass with millefiore sandwiched between.  I'm pretty thrilled with them, especially the orange one.  (I'm making one for myself right now!)   Grin

I like the way this pic turned out...


and here's a pic of them all laid out...

32  Darling Little Lily of the Valley Earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: February 22, 2008 10:46:21 AM
Spring fever hits hard.   I got these beads last week, stashed them for spring, and couldn't resist making them into earrings.  Smiley

I took a couple of different angles, they just sooooo cute...

OK..here's the bottoms....



and...here's "how they hang" ...

33  Fused Glass Tree of Life with Tiny Copper Inclusions in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: February 22, 2008 08:15:18 AM
OK THIS is my new favorite.  I dig the coke bottle stuff, but this turned out SO groovy.

The little tree is made of TINY TINY slivers of copper.  Copper turns this magical rose color when fused.  This was a PAIN to make...hahaha! 

But I'm very pleased.

The berries and buds are frit (tinnnnnny little powdered pieces of glass)  This was definitely a tricky one to make.

Smiley




...and then I made 10 MORE!

34  Recycled Coke Bottle Fused Glass Necklace and Earrings ( 2 pics ) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: February 21, 2008 01:05:19 PM
I am CONSTANTLY on the lookout for more things to melt in my kiln.   It's a sickness!

Smiley

So...last night, I was rummaging through my treasures, and found, amongst my glass, some antique bottles that I hoard. 

WHY NOT!??!?

So, today, ( and it took me ALL day )....I made these lovelies, and I couldn't be happier!

Tomorrow, I'm going to do beer and wine bottles for different color effects!

Smiley

Here's the earrings:



And here's the necklace:



yay!

35  Dichroic Pendants (I was in the hospital! ) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: February 15, 2008 09:11:26 AM
I got glass in my eye, (didn't even know it couldn't feel it, such a tiny piece)...and ended up with cellulitis.  

Sad

Had to get an IV and take it easy for a while.  Back now, everything is better but I took about 10 days off of fusing (first time in MANY years)...and came back with these designs!  

How do you like them?  These are made by layering mannnny layers of thin dichroic glass.  Each time I open the kiln, it's a new suprise, it is IMPOSSIBLE to predict what will happen with these ones.  I like 'em.  Which is your fave?

#1:



#2:



or

#3 ?




I personally like #3 the best.  It's soooo hard to photograph these dichroic pieces, so IN PERSON...#3 is my fave.

Smiley

(wow...I've missed Craftster...I've just written A NOVEL!)


Happy FRIDAY everyone!

Karen <-------glad to be back!

38  Misty Magnolia In Fused Glass in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: January 17, 2008 08:46:56 AM
I'm going through some kind of blue/green pond thing lately.   Anyhow...here's a really pretty piece that I made using a decal. 

I love how "misty" this is...feels like a hot night down in the deep south.  Magnolias are so romantic...

Thank you, spirals!  I love these tiny landscapes, too.  I gave one to my son's teacher.  Smiley

Here's another one I made...*not* my favorite, but I think it's groovy because it can be worn by either a girl or a boy..

40  Tiny Painted Pondscape In Fused Glass in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: January 10, 2008 06:56:01 PM
These pieces go to gallery, but I wanted to show one off, I painted this with glass paint, the paint is made of crushed glass, and is permanently fused into the piece, it's then wrapped with sterling wire.  These are some of my personal faves.

Smiley

Tell me what you think...this is a tiny little pondscape, sky,clouds,water, and foilage...
