Jewelry - Ivy Tree Designs

Beautiful unique art glass pieces are available for purchase at my Etsy Store.

I love making jewelry and working with glass. To make pendants and earrings, I first cut pieces of opaque and dichroic glass. Then I layer them, place them in my kiln, and fire them up to temperatures of 1400 degrees. After fusing they may need to be shaped and polished. Then it is back in the kiln for what is known as a “fire polish”.

The candy dishes are made by putting wine bottles in a glass slump mold and fusing them in my kiln. Afterwards I decorate them using wire wrapping techniques.
