I dabbled in borosilicate glass the other day and made a pile of glass slugs.

My husband raised an eyebrow and said "well those will be big sellers." Sarcasm is one of his specialties.

It started innocently enough, while playing with a tiny, tiny brass optical mold I made something that inadvertently looked like a slug body. I added the eye tentacles and viola! A glass slug.

My friend Jackie passionately loathes slugs, so of course, this pair is for her. Oh yes, she will wear slug earrings. Other than that I cannot imagine what I will ever do with them. If someone out there is a fan of slugs  leave me a comment and I will hook you up.

Wowww! I don't like slugs in the garden but as beads they are awesome!

Those are actually very cool! I love the twists. And if anyone gets squicky they can turn them on their ends and hang them from their backsides and call them icicles. Yeah. Icicles.
