Year of Jewelry 2010, Week 3

I have more fused glass to share for the third week of YOJ. These pieces come from the second day of the workshop, where we learned to add inclusions of copper between the layers of glass. (Silver also works, but nothing plated. A solid metal must be used) It's important that the metal is veeeeery thin or the glass can bubble and crack.

See the bubbles around the stem and leaves of the flower below? I probably should have used a finer gauge of wire.

Always more to learn....
