Welcome to A Hot Piece of Glass!

WELCOME to my colorful corner of the world! I write here about the things I make, in glass, fiber, metals, and whatever else I can find to play with!

I'm Occasionally Late...and forgetful....

I can't believe I forgot to mention this! The other day, I was the lucky, lucky winner of a drawing on Art Bead Scene! I won a set of wonderful ceramic buttons by Jennifer Heynen of Jangles!

Check these awesome things out:

They are gorgeous -- the colors are right up my alley, especially the little orange and red dotty one at the top, and that star! And they came wrapped in tissue paper in my favorite color -- ORANGE!

I haven't decided yet what I am going to make with them. I sew, and am highly addicted to fabric as well as glass and metals, so really, I could use them in any number of projects sloshing around in my brain. Hmmm.... I have some silk cord to match the bottom button....but my middle daughter has declared the star her "favorite, favorite", so it *could* go on a dress for her...

So many options. So little time (sometimes). :)

I'll think of something great. Those terrific buttons are definitely calling out for a fiber of some kind. When I nail it down and make the design, I'll post pix, for sure!

I love Jangles! I think that those buttons would be great clasps paired with your awesome glass, Christine!
Enjoy the day!

I am a big fan of Jennifer's beads. She does have a similar color palate as you...I love these bright, whimsical colors too.
