Welcome to my Blog. I am always trying to find new and unique ways to express myself through my glass. My work has evolved into my favorite item; pet cremation remembrance pendants. This is where I permanently fuse ashes between layers of glass. My most recent creation is my sepia - pictures in glass, where I take a picture and fuse it into glass. I have also done a few remembrance items with people's ashes which turned out amazing.

My glass can be purchased on either of my two websites

If you need something different, please contact me at
addicted2glassfusion@yahoo.com so we can discuss what you're looking for.

Enjoy my blog. Hopefully you'll find something that inspires you.

Vegas baby!

I can't wait for April.  I'll be jetting off to Vegas to take some glass classes.  I can't wait to get out of here, it's been so cold and cloudy. 

One of the classes I'll be taking will be, how to make bracelets and watch bands from glass.  Mother's Day is coming and I hope to be able to make my mom a special watch.  It takes some wire wrapping skills which I'm not very good at, but I can't wait to give it a try.  I've heard that making bracelets takes special talent to get just the right size.  We'll see how it works out.  I hope to make one for my grandma and my step mother for mother's day. 

My second class will be learning how to make bubbles in and on top of the glass.  I've figured out how to make bubbles in the glass, but the bubbles on the glass has been something I've searched everywhere to figure it out.

My third class will be a marketing class, which I really need.  I can't wait to see what else I can do better. 

So, April will be a great month of learning.  Hopefully I'll find some time to sit at the pool and enjoy the sunshine in between classes.  I'm not sure how warm Vegas is during April, but I hope warmer than here.

You may not see any new glass until June because I'm in school until mid May and then my friend Cora and I will be celebrating our 40th birthday's in Arizona.  I'll post my pictures of any items I make during my classes here on my blog.

For all you bead lovers, I have the place for you

I used to bead A LOT and I have a favorite place to buy my beads and other finding.  They've just announced they are closing their shop.  It's a sad day because I remember driving on several occasions to Sacramento, CA with my friend Rebecca to shop for beads.  We would make road trips to beadbabe and a few others and make a weekend out of it.  Then we'd pour all the beads out in our hotel room that night and laugh in happiness at all the great new beads we just bought.  We would say, I hope we don't get in an accident and our beads spill all over the street, because we would make sure the traffic stopped until we picked them all up.

So, if you love beads and you're looking for some good deals, you won't be disappointed in their quality, especially their crystals.  I comparison shopped their crystals with firemountaingems.com and they are quite a bit cheaper.  Some items are not cheaper even with their sale so you may want to do your own comparison shopping on your items before you hit the purchase button, to make sure you're getting the best deal you can.
