Blown Glass Lampwork, Midnight Heart, Wire-Wrapped Necklace Pendant
To make this, I first created a ribbon cane using black, white, and dichroic Italian soft glass. I melted the ribbon cane over a black base. When I was done, the glass was annealed for 14 hours in a kiln.
After annealing, I wire-wrapped the glass with copper wire, adding a crystal and a chain with a small skeleton key on the end, and soldered cogs and gears to the back, giving the pendant a steampunk look. This comes on a waxed cotton cord with a lobster claw clasp, the cord is about 20" long, and the pendant is 2.18" long x 1.29" wide and 0.60" thick.
Thank you for supporting my art and our small business,
More about us:
We are full-time artists with extensive backgrounds in the high-tech industry, which helps us with the technical aspects of our artwork and glass blowing. We love to incorporate science into our functional art pieces.
Our small organic farm overlooks the Bitterroot Mountains with several buildings dedicated to our work-from-home lifestyle. The Steampunk Shop is Rae’s creative space; the Torch Shop is where we blow our glass; the Big Shop is for general mad science and Bill's electronics lab.
Since 1993, our work has produced glass art, including hand-blown contemporary marbles, hummingbird feeders, and Pixie Orb ornaments.
We are spreading love and harmony - one piece of art at a time.
