I love this!   I have always wanted to work with glass, but haven't gained the funding for it yet.  And your skilled craftiness in wrapping the wire looks amAZING.

Nice work.   Grin

Glass is expensive to get into. My kiln was almost $700 alone. Most everyday people don't understand what goes into glass work. I've always enjoyed wire wrapping and find it very easy to sell.

You can always start small by taking a class. I took one at my local university, it was great! Classes are also offered at local glass shops. My mom took a stained glass class at a city recreational center. The prices vary, typically based on how much glass they provide and how much you'll have to buy. But a class is a great way to dip your toe in the pool - so to speak.

These are really pretty.  The colour is outstanding; its just grabs you the minute you you see them.  I like how you did all the little beads up the side.  Have you tried matching earrings?  How can I obtain one?  Liza
