Screen Melts Groovy Glass

      The Screen Melt Groovy Glass involves a 3-step process. It starts with glass being melted through a stainless steel screen, elevated on ceramic posts, in the kiln. Two colors of Opal Art glass are melted through the screen into a disk of swirled fused glass. The glass is still attached by small tendrils of glass, that are snapped away with one turn from the top. We throw on respirators, eye protection, and blow torch the tendrils back onto the fused glass disk. After designs are traced onto the disk, they are sawed into the shapes, with a diamond-bladed, Taurus 3 glass saw. All of the shapes go back into the kiln, to be fire polished at 1200 degrees. Finally, the 4" sterling silver wire wrap, or .925 sterling bails, are added.
      
After using this process this stainless screen device went back, realizing how dangerous the glass tendrils are, before they are blow- torched. Even though everything on the site is one of a kind, these will truly be the only screen melt batch I create. The sole pendants arrive on a dark brown leather cord necklace. (one of each pendant are available)

"My Happy Butterfly" on a .925 sterling silver bail ALL SOLD OUT- DISCONTINUED DUE TO HAZARDOUS PROCESS
 


Warm Glass Pendants & Accessories
  The Feathers of the Phoenix Pendants involve an 5 step process. It starts with a glass brick being fused from layers of transparent and opal glass dammed between four kiln bricks. That brick if sawed in half and bookended, then fused again. The humped brick is then sawed into thin slices with a round diamond bladed Taurus 3 glass saw. The slices are again bookended together and fused with a piece of clear glass on top. All are very beautiful and never the same. This was lot of work and I think they will be the only ones of their kind. Only a few of the the feather slices are small enough for jewelry pieces. If you love the design, there is a matching plate on the "home decor page".

                                        Necklaces to Wear Your Glass On

Tidbits:

There is 100 times more gold in 14K Gold filled (rolled gold) than in gold plate. 
A 14/20 Gold Filled piece is usually considered a lifetime piece of jewelry.

You should not mistake GOLD FILLED for GOLD PLATING. There is a very big difference. 14/20 wire or 1/20 Rolled gold wire is created by taking a sheet of 14K Gold and bonding it through extreme heat and pressure to a core of semi-precious metal (brass). The end result is a 14K tube which is strong, durable, and resistant to tarnish because of its 14K gold covering. By law this layer of karated gold has to be at least 1/20 of the total weight of the metal portion of the piece of jewelry.There is no legal requirement for the amount of gold that is ‘plated’ over base metal.

There are collections of old gold-filled wire jewelry pieces with dates on them from the early 1900's that are still in excellent shape!The finished product thus has a surface layer of gold of the appropriate karat weight which is very thick compared to gold plate, gold electroplate or rolled gold plate. The quantity of gold must be at least 1/20th by weight of the total product. This is commonly marked as 14/20, 12/20 or 10/20, which mean receptively 1/20th by weight 14K
gold-filled, 12K gold-filled, etc.

We love to keep our items affordable so everyone can show them off
