I have made a few fused glass watches and WOW! They turned out fabulous. I made a purple and a silver watch. It took me about an hour to wire wrap each one. I know I'll get a little quicker, or I hope so. I have misplaced my camera so I didn't take pictures of them with a digital camera. I did however post one of the pictures to my twitter. You can go to my twitter and check it out. http://twitter.com/addicted2glass The pictures aren't the best, but it'll give you an idea how they turned out. I really wanted to keep the purple one for myself, but it was too big. I brought them to one of my consignment shops to see if they can sell them with the size I made them without me having to re-wrap them to a different size. I'm still making some slight changes to the new watches I'll be working on. The problem with the watches I made; they aren't adjustable. I've just received some more supplies to see if I can make an adjustable band so they can fit more people. I have 2 more that I've shaped, but I'm waiting on some watch faces before I put them together. If I receive them today, I'll hopefully wrap them and post a few pictures here on my blog sometime next week. I hope you'll check back soon to see them.
Thanks for stopping by to see what's new.

I'm so excited. I can't wait for everyone to see my new dichroic fused glass watches that I'm working on. I'm still in the process of cutting and grinding the glass. I hope to fuse them this weekend so I can then shape them into the watch pieces next week. The colors are amazing. I'll have reds, blues, greens, purples, pinks, silver, gold, and so many combinations. When I went to Las Vegas in April, I purchased so many beautiful colors of the dishroic glass. I think I'll have a good variety of watches for people to choose from. I'll be posting pictures here on my blog and to my two websites when I have them finished. Here are the links to my sites. Chem back late June to see my watches http://www.artfire.com/users/addicted2glassfusion# http://www.etsy.com/shop/addicted2glassfusion
