From Glass Rods to Fused Glass

I bought these twisted glass rods from Ross of Nightcatdesign and I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them at first.



Here are the results - fused glass pendants and earrings with silver plate bails and sterling silver ear wires. The rods have been fused onto vanilla, white or black Bullseye glass that has been capped with clear glass. they were fun to make and I still have lots of rods to use.


When they are expose to the extreme heat fo the kiln the rods fuse flat and the colors spread considerably. This gives the glass an integrated appearance, that the colors were laid into the glass individually.


These glass rods work well on the vanilla glass. The green in the rod has a glitter to it which catches the light. The large bail is silver plate.


These matching earrings have a delicate look. The ear wires are sterling silver. Available for sale at http://glassprimitif.etsy.com
