Just finished making these after trying to figure out new glass designs to start the year off right ^_^ ~ :heart:
All of these are made with dichroic glass I hand designed, melted and shaped myself!

Rainbow Swallowtail Butterfly Wing:


Phoenix Feather:


Honey Drop:

Lovely work.  I'm impressed by your detail work - do you mind if I ask whether you sandblast or acid etch your dichro?  It's stunning!  On the pendant titled 'Honey Drop', is that an inclusion used for a bail?  Nice look.

Thanks. The designs are all from my own drawings  ^_^

I actually use a technique that I taught myself after years of trial and error. I am thinking of writing a book one day so I don't give out how I make anything right now.

Neat pieces, I think the butterfly wing would look great with colors like the feather, it would looke like a monarch or a viceroy.

I've made one in that color already ^_^. I also make regular monarch wings out of glass as well.
