glass necklace

I make these abstract necklaces with various pieces of  "warm" glass, either by cutting out shapes of colored glass, the use of glass beads or glass rods, then layer. In the layer I put some "kiln blanket" (which can be shaped (looks like a cotton ball) creates the opening for the necklace or jump rings), and  then put in my kiln to burn and see what emerges. I attached these to leather cord, along with decorative glass beads I got at the craft store to give a finished look.
