Here's some I made earlier - Adam Aaronson pendants
« on: May 16, 2008, 08:15:26 PM »
I've been making pendants this week....
here are one or two of the results.
Had to teach myself a few new skills and make a new special tool, with a bit of help from one of the neighbours.
I was quite pleased with the results. Usually glass jewellery is made by using lampwork, but not always. These
are furnace work.

They're lovely!  I agree with Pamela, that's a really nice one, cool glass.  So how were they made at the furnace, or is that a trade secret?

The method is similar to making a paperweight or small solid item like a bird. I take a small gather and use different types of pincers and shears to work the glass while, reheating once or twice in the glory hole. So they are made on a four foot iron. The trickiest part is making the hole for the cord to go through, since the timing of this is quite critical and it took a few goes to work out when to do it. Still getting better at it....but as I go along I become more adventurous and had a go at making a button today as well as a couple of rings....

....they are really so new that nobody has seen them apart from my colleagues and it is really good to get such a positive response so fast. If anybody is interested in acquiring one, it would be best to email me on adamatsignzestgallerydotcom or we'll be sent off to the Market Place!  ;)
But in the meantime, I'll reserve that one for you Pamela!

Thanks for the explanation, Adam.  I assume you got the multiple colors using frit/(insert favored term here).  I can imagine it would be tricky working with something that small at the furnace.  Keep up the good work!  I bet you'll have fun exploring this new creative outlet, there's so much you could do with it.

Hi Adam,
Can I be so bold as to suggest a twist of 90 degrees where the hole for the thread goes. This would then make them lie ( Spelling ?) flat on the body.
Regards Patrick.

I've got a couple of glass pendants where the 'hole' for the cord is like the first one you show, Adam.  I have to say I prefer that method.  Yours are very nice, by the way!  :D :clap:
