I mentioned Fernhill Glass Studio in my last post as one of my new favorite places to buy unique cabochons.
These glass pieces were not made for that purpose, in fact when I was digging through the large dish of discarded glass the owner curiously asked what in world I had in store.
I wasn't entirely sure I wanted to tell him since I still had yet to get the price, and perhaps bargain a bit with him. But once I realized it really wasn't going to cost me much, I let him know they were going to be turned into beaded pendants. Still, with the quizzical stare, he just raise an eyebrow and said 'huh, interesting.'
This piece of orange glass I had a certain person in mind. A young friend of mine is very partial to orange, and I could tell as I began to bead it that it was going to end up going home with her. I know this will look absolutely wonderful on her. Her mom gifted me some orange silk thread, which I think looks perfect with it, along with brass beaded accents in multiple sizes for the threading and around the top of the bezel.
I still have a bag full of this beautiful glass in a rainbow of colors that you will be seeing more of in the coming months. Lots of pattern ideas floating around in my head that are becoming sketches. I have them prepped and ready to go, now if I could just stop scooting them around to match them this way and that, I might actually get a few more pieces finished. Soon, I promise.
