31  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.

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


Happy FRIDAY everyone!

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

34  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..

36  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...

37  Cloudy Blue Raindrop in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: January 04, 2008 02:20:32 PM
TGIF, CRAFTSTERS!  YAY! 

I had planned on just glueing a bail onto this piece, but I noticed (to my delight) that there were transparent areas....

SO, I ground a groove all the way around it, and wire wrapped it.  I'm glad I did, because it turned out "groovy" hehehe (sorry, it's Friday, and I'm sooo glad)

38  Frosty Glass Goodness! in Beads: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: January 03, 2008 01:45:39 PM
I love to make earrings while I'm waiting for my kiln to cool.

These were some lucky earrings that I made today, and to my delight, they even cooperated with having their picture taken.

Good girls.

haha...I do this *every* year.  Once the holidays are over, I'm ready for springtime.

These few pieces demonstrate my favorite property of glass...it's transparency.

I love it!

40  Candy Girl Heart Shaped Earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by TickleTickle on: December 21, 2007 07:44:52 AM
Super simple design, but not much design is needed for these AWESOME dyed jade heart shaped beads.  Don't they just look good enough to EAT?!?!
