This was from a class I took on fusing glass.  They aren't perfect but I love them and I really want to get a kiln



Sorry for the bad photo, I can't seem to get a good one of them.

I also had a question, what is the best way to make them into pendants?  We didn't fuse them with the bale and I'm not sure how to go about attaching some or which ones would be best.

**WARNING** I am pretty much pulling this outta my ass!

I am no expert, and it would depend on how thick these are, but I think there are some pinch-type bails used to make pieces of stone into pendants.  You may have to drill tiny holes (can you drill glass? IDK!!) or you could maybe affix them onto the glass pieces with a glue that works well on glass and metal, like E6000.  Look at www.firemountaingems.com  They have TONS of different bail styles.

These are nice!
You could use silver wire (I like square best) to wrap them and make a bale.  If you use half-hard wire, it should hold the shape well enough.  Or you could try using plain craft wire.

you can drill glass, you just need to have water running on it otherwise the glass can shatter under the friction and heat. i do glass casting and we use the dremel all the time to clean up pieces after we cast them.
