Hinged Bracelet

I took a class this past weekend and made this hinged panel bracelet with a threaded clasp.

HingedBracelet4 HingedBracelet2Not perfect as there’s never enough time in class to get things just right. Still, I’m happy the hinge and threaded clasp works.

Dichroic Glass Beads and A Snowman

Took me all evening to make five of these beads…..

BlueDichoBeads2

They have blue splinted dichro encased in clear. There are three layers. Dichro scums in the flame so it has to be heated gently and then all the dichro needs to be totally encased in clear so it doesn’t burn.

Snowman

Then a little snowman. Isn’t he cute?
