What advice would you give someone starting this project? Never throw away things you make and are unfinished- always take your time- keep an open mind about the things you make as even though you may not like them others may- Remember to be thankful for the ability to make things and share them with those around you- hug your kids or parents and enjoy being alive finding new ways and new things to create. :)

This is wonderful. I really look forward to seeing you take off now that you are kiln firing and combining with glass. Fabuloso!

Thank you so much Jenny, I have been working on a few things though one of them keeps falling apart on me..I have not given up on it. lol

where did you buy your glass? So far I have only been able to find ground glass for enameling online. And honestly, combining the glass and silver kind of scares me!! LOL! But you did a great job and I am so glad it turned out for you!

I buy my glass at many different places. Hobby Lobby has the fuseworks though it is not cost effective if you are selling as it is way high unless you use a coupon-and as for this one, I am not sure if it is still together as I may of broken it playing around with it somemore..

I like to use Fuseworks but the only place I can find it is at hobby lobby- and its costly if you are planning to resell- I use a kiln for most of my glass/silver works- I do not use a torch because of the differences in the clay/glass-

One of the things a lot of people do not look at as much is the coe of the glass- over seas they use a lot of 96 coe while in the states they use 90 coe- no matter which one you use it is not recommended to mix them-
