I thought I would try this again and see if there were any new Fused Glass Goddies for you all to share. Here are a few of my latest Dichroic Fused Glass pendants.

So show me what you have made that is new.

Michelle!

Those are beautiful!! I have made one miserable attempt at fusing with my daughter. Someday, when I'm feeling very brave I'll post a pic of my miserable (Effetre) fusing attempt (looks like a starfish! :rolleyes: )

Show us more!! Thanks :D

Oh those are very nice. I haven't done any fusing yet, but plan too.

Are you going to be listing those? I like the POWER pendant.

Thanks for showing them,

:)Karen

You are all so kind I needed a boost this week. I have left ebay for a while I had a weird thing happen last week. One of my buyers was selling my stuff at my kids school under her name and it really put me off since she got it way too cheap on ebay. so that is why I needed the boost and have held out on ebay...I am tired of them getting it cheap. I want to start a thread on this.

Where are all my fuser friends!! I want to see some fused glass goodies.

Thanks everyone
Michelle

Thanks for posting your little treasures, Michelle.

I tinker in the fused glass also and it is always fun to see what other people can do.. I love the dichroic items and want to do some etching myself. Maybe I will get brave and post a picture some time...

Hi Michelle, your beads are beautiful. You are right about Ebay. I don't hardly list any fused beads except to attract buyers to my Ebay store.

Michelle and Mary, your fused work is gorgeous! I was selling cabs for a few weeks, but quickly realized that the prices were literally not paying for my time... my husband crunched numbers and told me that of all the glass work I could be doing, it was the only one that wasn't cost-effective, so I've pretty much given it up. I still have fused work up on my website, but eBay is a big loser in that regard. Here are a couple of cabs I've had up recently:

Hi Kalera, lovely cabs. I especially like the blue one. I still make cabs but mainly sell them through my website to a few of my repeat customers. I don't know how the cab sellers can survive on Ebay. Some were going for less than $3. Ouch.

Is this why nothing is for sale at your site? I was perusing there the other day and was disapointed nothing was for sale. I love your pendants and would love to see one in real life! I saw some dichroic pendants at a bead show a couple of weeks ago, I'm not sure any looked at pretty as yours!

Hi everyone,

I did this a while back. I really enjoy fusing, just haven't been able to break away from the torch lately :rolleyes: Seeing everyone's work makes me want to start it up again.

It's really great to see fusers showing off some of their stuff. Here's one I am quite proud of. The fusing and the wire work was all done by me. The wire wrap is a real nice alternative to showing off fused pieces.

I am seeing some beautiful fused creations out here. Keep showing me your stuff.

MiniLady, nice wire work wow.

ToniL-Please come back and show us more that piece looks very involved. NICE

Dichromary- I think I have seen some of your stuff before and admired it. Beautiful

Kalera- I love cabs and those are yummy, I add bails to mine and sell them, we can't make much on ebay with them, you are right.

Thanks Michelle, That was a really easy one to do. I used a rainbow dichro with the random big square pattern (don't know the official name), and fused it to the base glass. I used a ring saw to follow a few of the pattern lines on the dichro, and then fire polished it. I don't have many pictures of my fused work. I stupidly always give it away and then remember it would have been nice to have a picture :rolleyes:.

Lovely show & tell!

This panel measures 12"by12"

It is my first test firing with my new Skutt kiln. I have been fusing in my little Aim so this is a very roomy kiln for me.

I am very happy with this kiln & for someone who has been using a Fuji controller, amazed that I can actually understand the instructions for the Skutt.

(& yes, that window really is as dirty as it looks. Must clean sometime this year.)

I have to ask -- probably a dumb question -- but how is the lettering added to the "Power" cab?

Michelle, Why not sign your name on the back of the pieces and that way she can't tell everyone she made them. Also, you could offer to sell her quanity price for buying more from you than ordering them on e-bay. Think of how you could make more money, and just kiss them goodby as you go to the bank. Iona

You can see all of my fused glass on webshots if these pictures don't come through.

Hi Michele

Loved your wired cabs for earings, delicare yet glitzy.

As a bead embroiderer I use dichroic cabs in some of my works
I always thought it was a good idea for the glass maker to
sign her or his name on the back of the piece.
And always give credit to the glass maker ,when using their art work.

But I do have to admit, sometimes on ebay Ive bought a cab, thats
second hand, and the seller couldnt remember where they got it.
If it had been signed, then I could have given credit to the maker
and put a link on my webpage to them.

So it looks like the answer is in the hands of the glass maker
please sign your work, Quilters sign their work, for future generations
to see who made a quilt.

As beaders all we can do is buy tags to add to our work,
And yes sometimes people will remove those too.
It always amazes me how people think,you will work for 100 hours
on a piece of beadwork, yet they think they can buy it for $30, lol.
Educating the public is hard work.
Blessings Sandra
