I love piles of pretty, shiny gemstones as much as the next person - but oh my goodness, take a look at this fabulous dichroic fusing glass! Bill and I went on a bit of a shopping spree at the local stained glass place this weekend...This gorgeous glass (invented by rocket scientists for use on satellites) will be fused in the kiln for necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets. It's always a mystery how it will look when it comes out of the kiln. What looks blue and green now may come out yellow or purple. - or both, depending on the direction you view it from. But whatever the end result, it's always gorgeous. I am imagining lots of pretty little baubles to wear to the beach in just a few months. Yes, I'm counting down the days till summer. Be gone winter!
