I have to be careful when creating these, because the glass doesn’t like to be unevenly heated, but because they are so small, it works out perfectly. I was also concerned about the silver fuming and staining the glass, but so far, the clear does just fine. I will definitely have to be careful with the colors I use because of the silver fumes staining the glass and testing which colors work best.

In addition to the glass rivets, I am working on a wearable and a sculptural piece for a possible Seattle Metals Guild show.
