Editing Dichroic Pendant Pics

So i haven't actually tested my new kiln here yet. I have been trying to set up the home studio first and get all things together. I just recently purchased a transformer to plug in the 110V kiln which I am officially going to introduce in one of my next no picture of "her" quite yet.

Tomorrow will be the first day that I will be creating "new" glass pendants....I plan on firing them sometime within the week...possibly wed or thursday. I will need to make around 12-15 pieces for a batch of firing. Of course since it is my first firing here, it will need to be somewhat of a test fire because I am not quite sure if the firing sched will be the same as I did in Colorado where I learned to use my kiln.

As for now, I still have a bunch of my finished pendants to post. So I have been trying to take pictures of them that I can post in my website and facebook pages. Although I do like how the photos came out, it still is missing something. I mean if you look at my pendants in real life, they seem to pop with color and glow and do i capture that digitally?

Well, maybe with practice.... what do you think of these so far...

I gave each of them a name since each one will be a one of a kind piece...

Here is...

includes your choice of gold plated chain or matted black satin cord

Those are the few that I have edited so far. When you look at these pendants, there are particular ones that call out to you because of their colors or the way they light gives them a certain glow....and sometime it calls out to how you feel ...almost like bottled up emotions that you can see and wear and only you can understand....that's what I think about these pendants....

More to come in the next few days.....

Meanwhile....please visit my facebook page and you can see the pendants there is the link...

Have a great week!!!

New Jewelry Line

I haven't been around for a while but I am back now and I have something "BRAND NEW" ... I went on a trip to Colorado to visit my sister for a month. I had researched new crafts that I can learn before I went on my trip and found 'GLASS'. Now I am totally inspired and excited about this whole new craft that I have learned...

I won't quite get into it now but here is a sneak peak....

These are my newest dichroic pendants!!! The bails aren't actually permanently connected yet here in the picture but I was trying to match them. I am in love with the colors and the sparkle of each and every one of them. Each pendant is unique and will not be duplicated exactly as is.

So watch out for more about these beauties
