Today has been ornament day so far (twisty stuff) I will put up pics later. Hopefully I can find some inspiration before I get off break ... I really want to make something different today.
ordered from Artistry in Glass (ontario based supplier):
clear simax rod 9mm (case)
blue moon small frit by Northstar glass
the shipping cost from Ontario to BC is actually more than the cost of the goods. Shipping in Canada is crazy expensive!!
However - I should get everything in a few days which is awesome since I am almost out of solid glass. I use the 9mm as pontils (pronounced punty) when working hollow or as stock glass for smaller solid pieces.
picasa had scheduled maintenance or something .. rest of pics are up now .. check it out:
The jar is fumed with .999 silver ... that means that it changes color like a "color changing pipe" ... This christmas I am offering silver fumed jars filled with black wax (and a wick) as color changing glass candles.
When you're done you can rinse the jar out with hot soapy water and it's good as new (can be used as a shot glass or whatever). It takes a 1 inch cork.
Lampworked glass earrings .... I don't make earrings that often but this year I am committed to having a wide selection of glass earrings for Christmas. Now I just need to get more time in the shop. I think these are a good start though.
