A long time ago I went with Barbara to a glass fusing shop and I made a rainbow cheese plate.
I heart that cheese plate.
An even longer time ago, I went with Tejas to Livermore to another glass shop and I made three fused glass pendants.
I happen to REALLY like glass fusion.
And glass blowing, as it turns out, but that’s another story.
For Burning Man, every year I come up with a project where I give away something I created.
My first year I gave away organic peppermint SPF 30 chapstick.
I know, I didn’t make it, but I DID design the label.
My second year I made necklaces out of washers and I gave those away.
Totally handmade by me.
Last year I gave away a stainless steel credit card bottle opener engraved with the Burning Man logo.
Those were VERY popular and I do believe I have some left.
This year, I’m going back to making necklaces and this time around it’s going to be fused glass pendants.
I wasn’t able to find a glass studio willing to charge me less than $10 a pendant so I bought glass pendants in bulk on ebay.
I happen to like them a lot and I was able to buy 50 of them for less than $2.60 each.
Which is great because I still have to add the bail and a 30 inch silver necklace to make a hanging glass pendant.
I’m really excited about it, if a little disappointed that I didn’t get to make the pendants by hand.
I think they’ll look lovely on the playa.
