I recently went on a workshop to make jewellery from glass. It was great for me as it was two hours one saturday morning, then two hours the next. I do appreciate a paced approach!

I am really pleased with what I made, and am hoping to go back later in the year to make a larger landscape style panel. Exciting.

Here are my creations:

cuff links

These are cuff link and they didn’t come out quite right. One piece of patterned glass was upside down (very hard to tell when making it which way was “up”) so it looks different and melted into the white glass differently too. As cuff links are rarely seen side by side, I think they are ok. I have given them to a friend.

bracelet angle

This is a piece I have made into a bracelet with some leather thong. This angle shows the middle part as lilac.

This angle shows it as gold.

Here is a brooch I made for my mum. It was a real rush job as time was running out, so I picked nice bits she would like and did a quick arrangement. It worked really well!

The last one is a pendant – two pictures to show the way the colours change.
