I just fired some new word charms and pendants -

Custom photos can be fired onto the glass as well for $18.95, just convo with me via e-mail: for more details. Firing the photos takes at least 3 days-depending on techniques used. Shown above are one sheet of glass with shaped edges.

Custom Fused Glass Images

Have you seen this? This is my personal image transfer pendant, my babies-yeah they are older now, but you can't get them this close to eachother anymore-if you know what I mean.

Let me tell you how we make these-I won't give away too many secrets though! We use a laser printer to print images onto special paper. We then fuse a pendant together, get it just right. Then the next day we pick a image for that piece and water slide it onto the glass. It then sits for 24 hours. After that we fire it again. This time the image is burned into the glass. The image starts off black, then when it burns into the glass it turns a sepia color (brown tones). It is a nice antique classic look. This image will not scratch off, I have tried-it is on there, so I have to get it just right or all is ruined!

So this process takes at least 3 days, that does not include the time it takes to format the images so they fit or sometimes we grind/shape our pieces and fire again. All of this work is worth it though, just look at my little ones...I will have this piece forever.

Do you want one of your own, just let me know. Prices start at $25.00 for your own 1 inch by 1 inch image transfer. Your choice of colors and you can choose one or two colors. You can also add a leather cord with a sterling clasp for $5.00.

These are going to be great Mother's Day gifts, e-mail me if you are interested.

More photo transfer pendants to share!

Image transfer fused glass pendants are fun and unique. We can transfer almost any image by burning it into the glass. Most of our pieces are fired twice, once to fuse the glass and a second time to burn the image into the glass.

Some New Pieces

I have added a couple of new pieces to our Etsy shop and plan to take the following pieces to Scandinavia Place this weekend.
Image Transfer Fused Glass Pendants! Awesome butterfly image on red & white fused glass with a sterling silver ring for you to hang from your favorite chain or cord.

For those you who are not familiar with what we do...

We design and create our own line of jewelry. When I say we, I mean my husband and myself mostly. Our son likes to make something every so often and my daughter just likes to wear it!

My husband hand torches borosilicate glass pendants and is now creating wine bottle stoppers as well. He also metalsmiths rings and pendants, fuses Fine Silver into rings, necklaces, and bracelets, and fuses dichroic glass pendants and the occasional bracelet.

I create all of our beaded items (necklaces, bracelets, and earrings). I also wire-wrap with Sterling Silver to create mosaic pendants and earrings. And create Swarovski Crystal button rings. I love to use hardware items to create jewelry too-it adds an industrial feel.

Our son likes to put together the occasional pendant to fuse and make stretchy bracelets out of buttons.

So visit us in person if you can sometime. Our list of shows for 2009 so far are:

I am blogging again!

I don't think anyone really looked at my last blog, but I decided to try it again. I think it has been over 2 years since I did this.

We are now up and selling on I thought I would give it a try for my out of town customers and to possibly gain some new customers. Our etsy account can be seen at: Stop by and see what we have.

Here are some of my latest items available at Scandinavia Place (209 N. Main St; Independence, MO; 816-461-6633).

A multi-color Swarovski Crystal bracelet with Sterling Silver bead caps and toggle clasp.

Swarovski Crystal starfish wire wrapped with non-tarnish artistic wire with Indicolite accents on Sterling Silver posts.
