Busy getting ready for these two fundraisers designing and fusing glass for jewelry and my stainless steel bottle stoppers.

I begin by cutting and adding layers of fusable glass, heating them in my kiln to 1500 degrees.  Once the glass has cooled, I grind it to shape and return it to the kiln to fire polish the rough edges. Then the fun begins as I attach the new glass to their settings (this is where I find out how accurate I have ground the glass!)
