These dot work teardrop pendants are something I love to make and am proud to share with you all. I started making this design in the beginning of my glass dabbles and still enjoy making them. I work borosilicate glass on an oxygen and propane torch. I use graphite and metal tools and gravity to manipulate and the shape the glass. The colors in the glass are made with many metals and oxides and can change color depending on the amount of heat that is applied to the color and the type of flame it is worked in. Thanks for reading! All questions are welcome Smiley

Wow, those are amazing!

I'm interested in your setup... I've been told that boro is hard to do with just a regular torch (I have a mega minor) and an oxycon15.

Do you have a more robust setup, or do you find that making smaller things (like your lovely pendants) is possible with a soda lime glass setup?

I work on a Carlisle which is a pretty large torch. You could create small items with your mega minor. I would definitely give it a shot!
