I would wire wrap them and use them as pendants. P.S. to everyone, I just bought some fused glass cabs from OOAK Divas Etsy shop. They are GORGEOUS! The pictures do not do them justice.

I think pins or pendants also.  Are those bubbles in them thar?  I have never seen bubbles in fused glass and I've seen a lot of it..use it a lot.  I kinda like the bubbles.  Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I think they would make beautiful pins ( I'm a big pin fan myself!). I could see them pinned to purses and jackets.

I'd be totally wearing those on my ears in some fashion; probably one on a post and 2 dangling, just like a stop light. In fact, earrings are becoming bigger again, anyone notice, and I've got a tackle box chocked full of 80s earrings in outrageous sizes, shapes and colors. My daughter is thrilled she'll get to wear some of them.

I agree with pens or pendants, but they could also make cool bag charms  Smiley

Thanks everyone! 

CraftyChef   Grin .......as earrings these might stretch out the lobe a bit...yikes.....but I know what you mean....Big is In!

I think I may go with pins or I may offer them as components since I don't know how to wire wrap   Sad
