Great pendants!

If you double the cord and push the looped end thru' the hole, then thread both loose ends thru' the loop (and tighten), this will make the pendant lie flat.  (Apologies if you know that already ::) ;D)

Hi Adam

I think Anne E.B. is right about the threading of the cord otherwise they will probably twist to the 'wrong' side whilst wearing.  May have to make a slightly larger hole to accomodate the extra cord I guess.  They are really attractive pieces and I think you should take a few to the glass fairs with you, I am sure they would tempt the female glass lovers.

Thanks for all those very helpful comments, everybody. I'm still experimenting and I'm quite pleased with some of the results. I've been making some smaller ones as well, which are quite fiddly to do at only about 3/4 inch/20mm diameter and I'm hoping that this body of work will be quite affordable, so that they fall into the must-have category! 

I will probably be taking some to Reflect but we will also have some on sale to coincide with the forthcoming "Glass Wear" exhibition,

We've been trying out both methods of threading the cord btw and some work better one way than the other, so there is probably still a learning curve.  :)

Hello & Welcome to the Board! Sometimes my replies are short & succinct, other times lengthy. Apologies in advance if they are not to your satisfaction; my main concern is to be accurate for posterity & to share my limited knowledge

Re:cord........a silver ring through the hole and then the cord threaded through that.   Sterling Silver rings - I forget the proper name for them - are available very cheaply through jewellery  findings suppliers.  They are lovely Adam by the way.  Emmi

Thank you Emmi, I think this is what I'm going to do - an eye of silver or gold wire - the incredibly ugly sounding German word for this is: ÖSE (oese - pronounced like U in fur, S in please and E in the)  8)
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
