Intro to Glass Fusing Jewelry
Design your own piece of jewelry! This workshop will teach you about glass cutting, different types of glass, a variety of firing methods, tools needed and spark your curiosity for learning more. We’ll practice using the specific tools, discuss design and types of supplies needed for making a pair of earrings or pendants for either necklace or pins. Everyone will design their own piece of jewelry. If pieces are not completed by the end of the workshop then they’ll be mailed to participants.
