I do my own glass and thought it would be cool to combine my glass work with spoon handles. This is one of the many I have made.

Oh, I like it a lot! I think it's my favorite of the ones you've posted. I wouldn't have know it came from a spoon if you hadn't mentioned it.

Absolutely Stunning!  And I never would have thought to make a pendant out of a spoon handle! Beautiful work!

It's called dichroic glass. I fuse, shape and fuse again in a kiln.

The glass has be be around 1425 degrees. It takes about about 8 hours of slowly heating and holding the temp at different temps and letting it cool slowly. I also melt old marbles and make them into pendants.
