1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Glass Honeycomb Pendants on: October 07, 2013 05:49:27 PM
I'm super excited about these new honeycomb pendants I made. I love how the light reflects off the little honeycomb pockets. To make these, I start with a clear glass tube and coil colored glass around the end of the tube to create a cone shape. I heat up the cone in the flame, making sure the heat is nice and even, then blow out a bubble. I then draw dots of clear glass onto the bubble. I blow the bubble out again then shrink it down flat to create a flat disc. I blend, shape, and thicken the piece, then add a loop to create a pendant.
Thanks for checking out my work Smiley Please feel free to ask any questions.
2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Glass Teardrop Pendants on: August 06, 2013 03:19:29 PM
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

Hi everyone! Amir (my partner in life and glass) made some jellyfish pendants I wanted to share with community.
These guys are pretty big! About 60mm long (including the loop) and 25mm wide.
They're made on a oxygen and propane torch using tubes and rods of borosilicate glass. They take about 30 minutes from start to finish, then are set a kiln to cool slowly. If anyone has any questions about how they are made, feel free!
