This is my most favorite piece from Jim's fused plate.

Added one of my hummingbird beads to Jim's horseshoe nails heart.  I think Jim will have to make more hearts of several sizes for me!!
Using hammered copper with my lampwork glass hummingbird bead..still a work in progress???

Jim just made this heart from horseshoe nails. Now what to do?????‪   #‎hibernateandcreate‬

Jim made these copper pieces for earring.  I put them together today!!!
Hammered metal buttons make steampunk pendents.  Another Pinterest idea.
I finally found the antler buttons from Alaska.  I think they make great earrings.

I saw these on Pinterest..I just love buttons and had to make some...#‎hibernateandcreate‬
I finally put together these sun catchers from soldered hearts, lampwork glass beads and crystals.  Still working on my 31 days of creativity!! I have way more than 31 ideas floating around in my head.
Amazing I am still cleaning my craft room and found more crystal nail files.  I added fused dichrotic glass.  I am still looking for some antler buttons I bought in Alaska years ago to make earrings!

Kelli Sweet gave me these copper bracelets to bedazzle.   I added my lampwork beads and charms.

More fused glass pendents to add bails too.  I especially like the amber glass. It doesn't photo very well here.  But blue is always very popular too.
Added lampwork hearts to pieces of Jim's fused glass plate I cut into smaller pieces.  Now to drill holes without breaking them.  This always makes me hold my breath.

I like this pendent. ‪#‎hibernateandcreate‬
I added pins from Gail Boston to a straw heart covered in old lace.  I think is makes a pretty wreath.

Added clear/white frit to 2 more pieces from the famous bubble plate from Jim.  I have lots of great creations!!  Need to work on my shaping the hearts.  I bought new heart shaped cookie cutters at the New Hobby Lobby on Dodge.  It is so clean and organized.
Added dichrotic glass to a few more of the piece from the cut up fused plate.  I think these will be yard art too.....
Used some glass up.  I like the heart...only thing left to do is drill a hole...hope it doesn't break!!!

My ‪#‎hibernateandcreate‬ goal was to use items I already had but never used.  I like these coasters.

I pulled the pendents out of the kiln.  They are blue with dichortic. Now to add the bails or drill the holes....the work never ends.

Working on a green box with my fused glass knob. Would look good with bottles & flowers.  The knob would be great to hang jewelry.

I finished one pendent...several more in the kiln. Also I completed some more sun catchers.  I am glad the sun is out today, since is sooooooo cold outside!!

Gail Boston gave me a box of old jewelry.  Here are a few of the creations I made by adding a bracelet, an earring and a string of crystals to pieces of fused glass.

I just put these pieces in the kiln to fuse.  I sure hope I got them line up better that this photo shows.  I like to add pieces of dichortic to blue glass (from Jim's fused plate)  Re-purposing lots of items for my 31 days of creativity!!
Added clear frit with a heart cookie cutter for the shape. I am still using the glass from Jim's fused plate that had all the bubbles.
 I love the look!  It is hanging in my window near where I do my computer research...i.e Pinterest!

Made a magnet out of this fused glass heart.  I think it pretty but not sure the glass is thick enough??

Thursday, January 7, 2016

I am still thinking on this.  Can't decide between pendants, sun catchers or fusing them on another piece of glass.

Created 4 sun catchers from Jim's plate.  The photo doesn't show the great dichrotic!!  I have many more pieces in the kiln.

Made candle bottle cap.  Michelle Young gave me lots over the years for crafts...
I hung this in our 1st floor basement.  Jim made this several years ago, I finally drilled a hole and it makes great art work!
Bedazzled a horseshoe heart Jim made me.

I have been cleaning the basement. I cut this piece of fused glass to create some new items.  The air bubbles should be gone when I am done?????

I made these for ornaments.  I think I like the black E-6000 better that the clear regular.  I bought the black by mistake but I think I can find items to use it up!!!  I have saved my perfume "Pleasures" bottles.  But other bottles would work good with  my handmade glass flowers.
