New Stained Glass Pendants/Necklaces with Lace

It's been a busy year so far. Finally got a few tomatoes and cucumbers planted; then on Mother's Day, my daughter brought me six more tomato plants. Now I have twelve (!!!), but have to dig up a long section of dirt and fill it with good planting mix and manure before these last six get planted.

In the meantime I've worked on a couple custom orders. I had to make some lampwork heart beads for a customer. Unfortunately, this was during our hottest 90-100+ degree week. I got a little dizzy a few times out in the hot garage ... with extra heat coming off the bead torch and annealing kiln in front of me. I couldn't justify turning on the AC. Finally got those mailed off yesterday, and right now am working on four fresh water pearl necklaces knotted on silk cord. Three different colors and one a combination of colors. Varied lengths so they can be twisted and worn as one ... or worn separately. The customer had a great idea for these!

Today I listed a few new stained glass pendants I had made with lace between the glass. They are so lovely.
