Fused Glass

Elisabeth's fused glass jewelry has been a favorite for customers for many years. She keeps her glass studio in Western North Carolina.
Elisabeth starts with art and dichroic glass. She cuts several pieces by hand, the same size. She makes a twist of copper which she inserts in the glass prior to fusing. The cabochons are heated in a kiln to high temperature.and annealed. The process takes about 24 hours. Then she files the fire scale from the copper and hand polishes the cabs. She signs each piece. Twisting sterling silver wire, she attaches the matched pair to sterling French earwires. She packages in a box with a bow and placces it in an organza bag.
