The title already explains it. I started fusing glass and these two are some of my first pendants that I thought where nice enough to show (also made a lot that did not work out very well).
I do not use dichroic glass on perpose, using normal colors of glass pushes me to find interesting color combinations and shapes, while dichroics would just be nice already, without any effort in combining colors and such. I like that challenge.
I painted the first one by the way. I used porcelain paint, and designed the tree myself (its not a stick-on glas fusing decall). So I hope that it looks ok. I like trees (as some here already know Tongue) so that is why it became one.
The nice thing of the porcelain/glass paint is that it is scratch free and completely water resistant. So it is very sturdy stuff.

the tree pendant is stunning!  I love your use of the strong colours.  Beautifully done.  I have always wanted to try glass fusion and now do even more. Smiley

They are both lovely. But the tree pendant really stole my heart! Great work!

Thanks Smiley
Fancybutch, you should try it if you get an opportunity for it. Its magic really, I feel amazed every time at how melted glass looks, and how you can suddenly shape it. Very odd and very cool.  Cheesy

Thanks both Smiley!

Here is another one I made. I love stripes in glass, so I started trying to do that:



And this one is painted as well, like the tree one:
