Flameworked Cabochon Pendant

in #artglasslast month (edited)

This new cabochon from my Apple Series was flameworked on a flat mandrel with hand pulled murrine, annealed in the kiln, coldworked (ground and polished) into a rectangular stone, and set in a silver bezel. The bubbles are intentional....little bubble bees (wink wink)

This is an experimental piece and has been through many different iterations. I tried adding a frame with silver flowers; keum boo on the frame; pierced backing; sweat soldered backing; claws; no claws; satin finish; high polish.....It’s a little banged up but I learned a lot😂
