Come and have a go!

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of teaching an introductory fused glass jewellery class.  4 ladies spent two hours designing and constructing items ready for the kiln. Everyone made daisies to learn how to cut the glass. It's easy.  If you can hold a pencil and stand up - you can do it!

Then we progressed to pendants, earrings and cufflinks. The main problem here was too much choice.

One student brought along a bracelet made from lampwork beads. We managed to find similar glass  to create this matching pendant.

We used confetti and stringers for this perfect pink pendant.

I have some new dates if you have been inspired and would like to have a go.

  1. Really beautiful work. The daisies are fab and I love the gold glittery bits in the pink pendant.

  2. Very pretty and it must feel really good teaching what you love.

  3. Great class - good luck with the upcoming ones!
