Glass Acorns

I have pendants similar to this carved of bone. I wanted to see if I could make ones out of glass. I think with a little more practice, I could get them just right.

Eggs One and Two

These are two of the eggs that I made in the same off-mandrel lampworking technique class.  Now you can see what the amber nests were for. The polka dotted one I made so I could practice dot control, but I left it in the heat too long and the bottom got scorched.

Amber Nests, three and four

These were made by reaming molten glass with a graphite reamer.  To make the frozen drop crown shape, I pulled out petals by using tweezers, a technique we use to make easy flowers in hotshop.
