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!

New work!

I haven't been totally without time to create....

For your viewing pleasure, behold a bracelet made from the headpins I mentioned in my last post:


And made from a recent estate sale find, this necklace, called 'Relic', from my own copper tube beads and vintage glass and metal beads, mixed with my own lampwork:

And the matching bracelet:

Some heavy-gauge copper wire -- working on my hammering and shaping skills.

I especially love that fall leaves bracelet. I keep intending to put it in the shop, but I haven't yet....telling myself that the pictures aren't good enough, and waiting for a sunnier day to take more shots...

And that 'Relic' is one of the longest necklaces I have ever made -- 26". The photo does not do it justice.

I need to make a bracelet with those pumpkin headpins....THAT is really cool-looking in my mind....I just haven't had a chance this week to sit down and work it all out.

Art Bead Scene's October challenge is awesome, and I want to enter it (I already made appropriate beads), but once again, haven't had time to work out the design. Must learn to design in my head, on the run, so I can knock out the piece in one go when I *can* sit down to the work table (ironing board).

Okay, that's it for now....hopefully I will have more soon!

All your pieces are beautiful Christine! I especially love the first bracelet with your leaf headpins and love the autumn colors!
I feel your pain, recently I've had a difficult time getting the time to create...it's the pits!

Christine, wow your spring-link bracelet is a stunning one! Your headpins really make the bracelet - it is so incredibly pretty! You have been on a great creative streak! I love your long necklace (long necklaces are my favorite) - the colors, the design, everything.

I've been hoping to see a work made from headpins. I see headpins but not them made into jewelry! It's true that they make a work of art themselves, but thanks for giving us a start-to-finish look at these! (Really, really nice by the way!)

Hi Christine! I have been off the grid- love your bracelet- the copper coil beads are wonderful with red and greena and just in time for the holidays. Hope you have been fine. I have missed stopping by.
