lemon lilac cuff links - fused glass

I've had a fun couple of days in my studio experimenting with cuff links. I particularly love these - the yellow combined with lilac and white is just delicious! More cuff links are available in my etsy shop.

Linea Carta

I've wanted a gocco machine for at least 8 years now and still don't have one. So in true gocco love I've found one of my favourite gocco artists on etsy to share with you. Below are a few pieces from Liana Carta's alphabet cards. To find out more about this talented artist visit her website or blog.

a thousand flowers

I've made this 'pale pink bouquet pendant' to donate to Lyssy May who is hosting a Think Pink Party on Sunday July 20th from 2pm to 4pm to help raise money for the Kim Walters Choices Program. For more details go to Lyssy May's website.

The pendant has been made using Italian glass - millefiori which means 1000 flowers. It has been fired to 800 degrees in my tiny kiln and set on sterling silver. It's threaded onto a lovely sterling silver snake chain.

round experiments

I've been playing with the printed plastic that I make some of my other earrings from and really love the result. I will be out of the studio again for the next two weeks but am looking forward to experimenting further with these when time permits.
