Putting a Little Gleam & Glimmer Into My Life

On a recent Friday evening
I took a stained glass jewelry class
at
a local studio and shop.
 
In addition to being a lot of fun
I find it rewarding
to learn new skills.and
challenge myself artistically
 
These are the pieces
I am proud to say
were designed and created by
me!
 I struggled for awhile
with this pendant.
What I visualized
and what I was able to make happen
weren't always one and the same!
But I am happy with the finished piece.
 
My heart pin
came about as a result
of falling in love
with the pink glass and beads.
And I've always been a fan
of  pink and silver
together.
The heart design was a no-brainer!
 
Can't wait to play with stained glass and solder again.
Off to check out
February's class schedule.....
