Gotta love the glass!
What is it about dichroic glass that is so fascinating? Is it the color
play? The depth? The sheer extravagance of both? Whatever it is,
I am in love with dichroic glass!
Not all is created equal, and it takes a certain eye to put combinations
of color, metallics, size and shape to create a really special piece. I am
lucky to have such a person in my dear friend, Sharon 'Harry' Solly,
of Solly Creations! She was 'just playing around' with dichro, and I was
gifted with this amazing peacock patterned piece.
Being the Queen of Procrastination ( it is really how I manage to collect
and ahem, sit on my treasures, so to speak - a la Smaug the Dragon
from The Hobbit- you can imagine that I surprised even myself when
I created both the netting for the glass AND a herringbone-based
bracelet within days of receiving the piece!!
And I adore it!
Hope you enjoy! Click on any photo to make full-size.
