Die cut stars and flowers [Sizzix!] made of copper sheet[it changes color in the kiln], fused in-between French vanilla, black, turquoise, pink and soon to be fused, teal and clear glass. They're about 1 and 1/2" to 1 and 3/4", it recently dawned on me that I don't like to wear most of the smaller stuff I make, so things have been growing  Cheesy

Very nice!  My pieces have been shrinking....I'm finding that I like the smaller ones..lol.

I just bought some copper---and I love the color it changes in the kiln!  If you have any stronger (name brand - like Fiskars) scrapbooking punches, they work great for "cutting" out various shapes from the copper.  I was able to make a pretty intricate Cinderella Castle pendant by using my scrapbooking punch.

Good luck and nice work!

I altered that, I was thinking hand cut as opposed to being pre made/purchased type things, but they're hand cut by me with my Sizzix! And metal sharpens the cutters too! I want to get some of the smaller scrapbooking ones, but have so much craft stuff already I can't justify it yet Grin

I absolutely adore the first pendant. Love the simplicity of them all though, and copper is just gorgeous.

I think I'm making a blue flower one with a matching ring for me, I have a feeling I'll end up with a few different colors, so far I'd only made myself a black one Grin

Wow, these are gorgeous.  I'm wanting to do more smaller pieces of jewelry like you've done Smiley
