Ice Balls Bracelet


The 'Ice Balls' bracelet is finished.


























Thirty-nine clear glass headpins, with hammered spirals of brass in their centers, chained together to form a bracelet.

























Some have lots of bubbles, from lots of heat while melting them round.























Some, only a few bubbles on the coil from less time in the flame.
You wouldn't believe how many rods, and shorts, of scummy clear I was able to use up making this bracelet.
























p.s. this one is mine.

Lovely, all the bubbles inside the clear glass, almost like the begining of some new life form...

Beautiful! I wondered if you preheated the metal before putting glass on it? I tried something Similar yesterday but haven;t been back to the studio see if they cracked. I also burned one of the metal ends off trying to preheat it! Different COEs and all...
Thanks,
