These two use reclaimed wire from a printer we were throwing away.





These two use decals that I got from AAE Glass

Using the wire is pretty cool ,and look so pretty. Did you have to strip the wire?

The decal pendants are pretty, too.

I really like the winter tree - it invokes really cool atmosphere.

Yes, I stripped the plastic covering from the wire (I did discover that doing this in 2 steps makes it easier to handle the "tree". So I cut a piece the size I think I need, strip the top third and shape the branches; then remove the rest of the casing, twist the trunk and finally make the roots.)

Fun work! Funny that you stripped wire for these.  I just got a larger kiln and we had to run a second 220 line for it......hubby was tossing the extra cable and I just had to rescue it for exactly this purpose.  I'm hoping to try some larger pieces but am a bit worried about bubbles....still mulling on a firing schedule.
