Fused Glass

I create my art glass jewelry by cutting special glass manufactured especially for fusing, then arranging and gluing it together. Pieces are then placed on a kiln shelf and fired to a specific schedule for glass fusing. The glass pieces are melted or fused together in the kiln. Then specific fused items are cold worked with grinders and placed back in a kiln for fire polishing. Bails may then be glued or wire-worked to turn them into beautiful earrings and pendants. I also create larger fused bowls and plates.

Fused Glass Bracelets

My own fused glass cabachons set into adjustable silver plated bracelets.

Cast Glass Pendants

I add frit, dichroic glass and other components to ceramic molds and fire them in a kiln to create these unique pendants.
