I spent yesterday in Rodez, the capital city of the Aveyron, so didn’t have much time in the workshop. So I though I would show you something a little different today.
Dichroic glass is very difficult to photograph as it changes colour according to the light as you can see from the two photos above. As you may know I really don’t like mass produced silver plated findings and this let me to making my own sterling silver ring blanks – I feel that if you have made a beautiful piece of glass it deserves a good setting.
Today I have been working on a new ring, a pair of super easy earrings and of course orders – Oh and a couple more pairs of Christmas earrings – holly this time so please join me tomorrow to see how they turned out .
If you like dichroic glass I run a 2 day/3 night and 3 day/4 night glass fusing workshop where you’ll also learn how to make your own silver & copper findings for your glass. http://www.lavidalerie.com/JewelleryMakingHolidaysandWorkshops.html
