Well, okay, it's my second batch of fused glass...but the first fire didn't even resemble any kind of glass... therefore, this has now become my first batch!



The black and blue one is about 3" big and the smaller ones are an inch big.  Any ideas what to do with them aside from pendants or bracelets or any wearable jewelry?  The red one is already a pendant.

sometimes larger ones can be tiles, or if you were doing a really special mosaic you could incorporate the smaller ones in between tile pieces, or into a backsplash.  the fact that they are opaque means that using them like tiles would work ok.

Cool! If you made a ton of the smaller kind, you could make a pretty sweet belt.

ooh... buttons! Great idea...  I like magnets also.  I WOULD use them as tile except I'm not making that many and because I rent, I'd have no place to put them except on furniture and that stuff is kinda antique-ish, so I don't wanna fudge it up with my crappy fused glass.  And I don't wear belts but that is a great idea!

Thanks for ideas guys! Keep 'em coming!!
