Here are some photos of some pendants I'm working on...you can see their rough cut edges...
The next step is grinding them all smooth, drilling holes and firing in the kiln a second time to fire polish the ground down surface.
I'm having fun with the collages in these small pieces!

Look out! Like I didn't have enough going on with my glass, now I'm trying to combine glass with metalwork! I feel like it's taking it to another level and so far I'm really enjoying it!
I'm taking a class at the Sawtooth Center in Winston-Salem with Brittany Sondberg. Right now I'm just working with brass, nickel and copper until I get the hang of it and then I'll get into silver.
I'm etching some nickel and copper to use in my upcoming class...This is the acid bath I'm soaking the metal in:
And the results on nickel:
And on copper:
thinking about ways to combine it with glass:
and a copper and brass ring I'm working on...that's a silver prong that will hold a piece of glass...after I add three more prongs, of course
it looks pretty rough right now, but I'll post later after I get it all cleaned up!
