I finally worked on my web site, Atouchofglassjewelry.com. Go check it out! I have a coupon there for you to use and will be adding things periodically. I have had the domain name for about 6 months. I am ashamed to say that it has taken me this long to get it going. Check it often for little surprises and let me know what you think of it.
I should have some new pendants by the first of next week. My newest little witch sold within minutes of adding it to Etsy. I guess witches are in! Here's the link to my web site.

Here is my newest steampunk creation. I call it "The Witching Hour". This was my first attempt at using polymer clay and I love it. I made her hat and hair out of the clay. Much easier to use than I thought. Love the vintage watch partial plate that I used for her body. The writing on it has a whimsical look to it. I'm just finishing up some other ones that should be ready by tomorrow. Have a great evening.

Here are 4 new Halloween pendants. The first one is "Trick or Treat Candi". I love her, she looks a little lost and sad, she doesn't have any candy in her pumpkin. Poor girl! Then there is "Who". Gwendolyn is asking Who The Owl to go to the Witch's Ball. Let's not forget the Masquerade Ball, "Ebony and Ivory" are going to the ball together. Then to round it all out for the holiday is "Sphinx the Fortuneteller".

New Halloween painted pendants will be here tomorrow. Check later in the morning and I should have the pics up for you to see. They are in the kiln right now and will cool all night. This is the part that is so exciting. From the time they get painted and then fused they do go through a little change. Love to see the outcome. See you tomorrow!

One of my customers, Joanne Jepson, bought one of my painted fused glass cabochons and then did an incredible job of beading around it and making a necklace. I love the way it turned out. Evidently I'm not the only one. She entered it in the Ohio State Fair and won 1st place. How cool is that. She did an awesome job. I can't wait to see what she does with the next one.

Here's another new steampunk creation. The one I called "Wind Me Up" because she looks a little too relaxed. Anyway she started out with a beautiful butterfly pendant and I added one of my painted fused glass faces added some vintage watch parts and rhinestones. Her green eyes capture the green in the butterfly wings.

This one is Fall and Halloween inspired. Something about the layout of this one with the pointed metal filigree behind the head made me think of Dracula's collar. Love the citrine rhinestones set along the topaz stones of the filigree antique brass tone metal setting. Her face is Asian inspired with a more worldly look to her.

Here are a couple of new painted fused glass cabochons that I just finished. They are leading into the Halloween season. I can't believe that I am saying that. I have already been subconsciously humming Christmas music. It's been chillier than normal here so I figure that is why. Anyway here are the two new ones, "Just Me and Magpie" and "Poof, You're an Old Crow".
Another new one but not for Halloween. I call this one "Queen Bee". Love the filigree on this one.
