Another part of what I make is Jewelry.

I make rings, earrings, pendants, brooches, hair slides and book marks.

Here is a selection of them...

Rings  only $10 each, adjustable silver plated

Pierced Earrings $10 pair

These pendants are on silver plated bails $20

Photos never do Dichroic any justice.   The colours are fantastic in real life, many changing colours as you move them.   Most are on silver plated bails (some gold plated)

Another bunch of unique pendants, these are priced at $20 each.

As I take many of these to markets and the like, they are not all available, but if there is any that you woud like email or phone and I will check to see if it is still available..  :-)

Blue has to be one of my favourite colours, I use it a lot.   as you will see ;-)

This long dish can be used for biscuits etc or for candles.             22 x 10cm   $20 

A Closer look at the larger Fluted Platter $35

I really like how this turned out.   Use it to serve some yummy homemade biscuits or to display some candles.   22 x 10cm   $20

Green Theme

Sometimes I have a theme going in my work the next few are part of the Green theme, I could say it was inspired by our spring, except I made these earlier this year (our summer ) lol

I hope you think they are as fresh and yummy as I do!

This Is a square plate approx 22 x 22 cm and is $40.

This is the Original Rachel Bowl.  Named for my daughter Rachel as she made and designed this, and we have all recreated it in some way or other.
(Not for sale)

Continuing the green theme is this fracture/streamer  small Rachel bowl Ideal size for nuts or lollies or equally pretty as a candle holder.                                Each bowl is unique, although the glass may be the same the placement of the confetti and streamers create a unique look.    Priced at $20 


Green Pebble Candle Bridge  $25

Saturdays photo

This cute little bowl I call Blue Retro Bowl. $10

It has delicate fluted edges and is approx 10cm diameter, the slump style is Hannah.

This piece was made by my wonderful daughter Rachel,
and was inspired by patchworkers.... i think this design is called a pinwheel.
So we call it the "pinwheel sushi" $15

I have slumped it in the sushi bowl 12 x 12 cm square. These look great with a small candle in them.

Going back to Monday...

I know it is still Tuesday but thought I'd catch up a bit... so this is mondays photo ;-)

I love this plate I call it the M & M plate. $20
It is approx 22cm x 10cm and slumped on the Emily mold. It can be used for biscuits, pieces of cut up fruit or just to look pretty :-)

Ok my plan is to add one photo per day but i have aleady skipped a few days... :-(
Oh well, my best laid plans...

I call this plate "Pretty in Pink" $20
It has been slumped in the "small rachel" so is about 14cm x 14cm square, with 1.5cm lip and shallow bowl in centre.

THis style is great for lollies, or collection of bits n pieces.

2nd Posting :-)

I am on a roll.... LOL

My second posting already ... am going to try and post some photos!

Here goes...

Ahh haaa ....the first photo, this is the very first plate I made, after nagging Jeanette at Beads Everywhere

to get the "glass guy" Steve R from Vic. in, we began with some simple glass pendants and quickly progressed to fusing and slumping.....
now i am hooked. I make 1 or 2 plates plus some pendants/cabachons a week. So there is always something new for you to see.

If you live in Adelaide, come down to Beads Everywhere, Shop 3/155 Old South Road, Old Reynella 5161 (Ph8322 5327) where you can see my as well as some other peoples' work.


First Posting

Well as this is my first post to my first blog, I just want to say Hi!!!

I wonder if any one other than myself will ever read this?? lol

I hope to blog about the creative processes in which I create things, at the moment my passion is fused glass.

I will be posting photos etc. and look forward to any comments.

Bye for now
