Hi, Here are a few glass froggie pendants made of borosilicate glass in my studio with a torch. Each piece starts out as a rod and I then form it into what you see below freehand. I just love making frogs and enjoy all the work i've seen in the "glass crafts" category recently! Keep up the great work everyone!

I love frogs! These are amazing, aaaaand are you selling them on etsy, or open to personal swaps? There must be a way to get my hands on one.  Shocked

EDIT: Or I can just look at your signature.  Cheesy

Wow. I've tried my hand at (ittybitty) glass bead projects, and it's so hard. I'm guessing it takes some serious dedication to make those. I'm curious, though, how do you get those colourful patches inside the clear glass heart?

The one on the far right is SO on it's way to my house right now! Not only is Boomwire an incredible glass artist, but super great to conduct business with. Keep 'em coming I'd love to see more of your creations!
