I’ve been panicking because I made some new glass pendants but I had no chains or laces to hang them on. In the end I went to our local supermarket and found some plain chains that were reduced a bit in price. As I make one off things I don’t use wholesalers so it’s a bit difficult to just find an appropriate match for the pendants.
I used my business cards to display the pendants. I realise now that my vibrant painting matches the colours on my jewellery.
They will be for sale at the Waiting room gallery in Longport, Stoke-on-Trent.
One and eight are my hubbies pieces, the rest are mine. Out of the kiln at Art Glass Lounge. I did them at a workshop. Some are being turned into necklaces, some brooches and a couple will be attached to rings. I’m collecting them tomorrow. I’ve really enjoyed learning such a simple technique of layering glass to get a sparkling result. Can’t wait to collect the finished pieces. I will take a photo of them when I get them.
Just delivered this to my friend. She is really happy with the necklace I made. The others have gone to the Waiting Room gallery in Longport, Stoke-on-Trent. They are having an open day on Saturday along with Cherished Chimneys across the road from there. I like the way it lies flat, the wire weaving looks really neat and the colours look good together.
One of my glass pieces. I didn’t have room to put them on the stall today. They are quite chunky so I’ve done some smaller pieces which are going to have rings put on them to hang off chains, laces, or ribbons.
Being creative is hard work, but I enjoy it too much to be bothered about that. I just keep doing things. I wonder whether I can continue for a few more years?
I did a glass workshop a while ago using blue glass and copper and silver and Mica and different coloured foil.
I then asked a friend if she could do some wire weaving around them to turn them into fabulous necklaces. A few months later (she is quite ill so can only work on things occasionally) I collected these lovely things.
I’ve included front and backs so you can see how they are held in place and the intriguing patterns of wire on their backs. They come complete with gold coloured chains with loops and bars to open and close them.
They are for sale so contact me if you want a unique gift or treat for yourself.
