Fused Glass Garden Stakes

These are some of the garden stakes I've been making with wrought iron stakes and fused glass pieces. These are great in a garden or in a large pot on a patio as an art accent.
So much fun to make, each one is different and an original design made up as I go along!
These make great gifts, I sold all but four of these at the trunk show in December :)

Heart Wall Piece

I made this wall hanging for a Creative Glass Guild of Etsy challenge using recycled material to create a new piece of glass art. This is made from older glass heart pendants that weren't turned into pendants. The red glass at the top and bottom is scrap glass, the side accents are wavy noodles and the hanging material is beaded with tiny red hearts for accent.
I love to recycle!

Mosaic Birdhouse

My first attempt at a mosaic birdhouse! I made this with Brendan and Logan for their Grandma Amin when they were here this month. We had so much fun making this project together.
I want one too!

Happy Customer!

Thought I'd share a picture of one of my best customers wearing the new heart necklace she purchased from my Etsy store last week.

Looks beautiful, Melissa!

Latest Stained Glass Piece

This panel is made with hand rolled glass with Geode slices for accent. I sold this piece the first week it was listed on my Etsy site. When my customer received it, it had a crack across the Saguaro! We are now in the process of waiting for the USPS to approve our damage claim so she can send it back to me for repair. All the stained glass panels I've shipped as gifts and the first one I sell gets damaged in transit. Thank goodness for Insurance!

Pendants and More!

This is a fused glass heart that I made into a necklace. It's strung with Garnet and gold filled beads and finished with a gold filled toggle clasp. The heart is fused with 23K gold leaf.

These a two of my latest, "Bubble Pendants".

A Dichroic fused glass heart. This sold in a couple of hours after I listed it on my Etsy site.

Fun fused glass "Ghost" earrings and pendant. These were very popular for Halloween. A special "thanks" to my step-daugher, Lisa for promoting these to her co-workers!

Dichroic pendant beaded with glass beads and finished with a Sterling Silver toggle clasp. Sold.

A few of my favorites

Stained glass panel made with hand rolled glass.

I just finished these windows in November 07. Lots of little pieces for the grapes, but well worth the effort. This are installed over our wine cooler/dry bar area in our nook.

One of my favorite commission pieces. Made as a gift for my sister's in-laws for Christmas a couple of years ago. Picture is of it hanging in their home in Virginia.

This table top was my first glass on glass mosaic project. It now sits on a wrought iron base on our patio.

The "Morning Singer" Native American Kachina fused accent piece.
