1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Another nest...with little charms :) on: March 09, 2016 10:13:57 AM
This is the same kind of nest, but with these teensy charms <3

The white bead = an angel baby, and then I also added a tiny wing.

I finally perfected my technique enough that these don't look like a great big tangle. 

Sometimes, I add a mama bird to the chain, and sometimes some little alphabet charms.

Some moms ask for wings or little white "egg" beads in instances where they've lost a child (miscarriage, stillborn, SIDS, etc.)

I love these and I love making them!

I also make a bunch of these precious little nests Smiley

My poor fingers have callouses in weird places from twisting wire 24/7 but these are so adorable.

I've been twisting wire like crazy to get ready for Mother's Day!

Here's my haul so far, and I have much more to go.

5  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Fused Glass Aspen Birch Tree Panel on: October 02, 2011 07:14:28 AM
I was NOT sure about this one when I put it in the kiln last night.  It looked like a giant mess of broken glass.  LOL!

The glass faeries came last night in my sleep, and I was delighted to see what happened...this will be fired once more to clean up the edges, now I need some advice.

Should I put this in a frame, so it can be hung on the wall, or should I put it on a stand, so that it can be displayed on a tabletop?

My very favorite thing to make.  These are buggers to make, I usually end up scrapping over half of the batch for one reason or another...usually huge huge bubbles.   But when they DO turn out, the results are wonderful!

7  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Happy Halloween! I made candy corn...in my kiln! on: August 30, 2011 05:22:49 PM
OK I KNOW these look really simple..but they're NOT!  First, the colors have to be right on, and all of the colors need to be uniform, and the shape has to be symmetric...and these are TINY.  I nearly go buggy-eyed every year making these buggers!  I also wire wrap them because adhesive tends to dry and become brittle when left in a jewelry box for a long time..and nobody's going to wear these all year.  I love these little sweeties!

The photo here was more difficult than the pendant itself.  A simple project, but always turn out lovely!

9  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Little Pondscape Pendants! yummmy! on: August 13, 2011 10:56:12 AM
*sigh* I love you, glass.   Last week, I made oodles of sunflower pendants, this week I tried these pink ones with the same design idea...now I love these! They remind me of teeny tiny little lily pads in a pond!
10  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Sunny Sunflower Fused Glass Pendant on: August 11, 2011 05:35:15 AM
These were fun to make!  I made 10!!! haha!

First, I made a test piece and posted an informal poll on my Facebook page...wasn't so sure about the shape.  I didn't grind the into a perfect circle...kind of left them organic...let the glass do what it wanted to do. 

I was happy that my FB friends voted for the organic shape.  Smiley  What do you think?
