Sweet fused glass Christmas tree ornaments, about 1 and 3/4" high, made with sparkly green aventurine glass, topped with clear frit -ground up glass- "sugar", and millefiori flowers! The wire they hang from is fused into the glass Grin

I love them!







My mom also pointed out the millefiori reminded her of this candy, which I remembered once I saw it, and goes well with the "sugared" concept, but was totally accidental/incidental!  Grin

How cute an unique! I just love millefiori, and using it in my mosaics. Never seen this technique before, but oh the possibilities. Smiley

I ordered a small bag of them for fusing, I think 2 weeks ago, so I'm still trying to firgure out hat to use them for, which seems to cause me to add them to everything!
 What I really can't figure out how to use is the glow in the dark powder, it glows well, Amelia loves the test pendant I made, but now what?!
