Those look incredible!  You are very talented, I can see why you are so proud  Smiley.  I love how the colors look (on both of them, of course).

I love you.

I've never seen anyone make space jewelry like that before. Your pendant really has a striking resemblance to the crab nebula and it's gorgeous.

It must have been kind of hard to use frit while lampworking. How did you get it to stick in the right places without letting the pendant harden too much? (Or is it made out of borosilicate? That's what I thought at first, with the erratic color changes it looks like one of those "magic" unstable colors.)

That is gorgeous! And I love how it changes color with different backgrounds. So very cool.

You did a great job with that. I really is something to be proud of.

It is amazing how much the background changes its appearance.
