Uterus Opening!

So, the Wandering Uterus was a smashing success! We had a great turnout for the opening. The work was amazing! I realize it's been a while since the show but a lot has happened since then! I moved! (probably the biggest thing) Fabulous new studio! That required a little work to get going but it's up and running. I hope to share some photos of that soon. And I promise my next post will include photos from the Uterus show. But, for now, check out the glass jewelry pieces I made special for it.
They're fused glass pendants with sensitive ferns and their seed pods fused between the layers. When the organic material burns off it leaves a skeleton image behind on the glass. Those of you that know my work....yes, this series continues my obsession with the fern and the seed pods. Encasing their skeletons in glass feels like a preservation process to me, I made one for myself and I always feel like I'm wearing a sort of amulet when I have it on. I'm sold out at the moment but I will probably be making more. Let me know if you're interested. They're all one of a kind, and the image depends on the reaction of the fern in the kiln so there's a little bit of chance involved which makes them exciting.

I absolutely LOVE the Onoclea pendant. We named our daughter Onoclea ("Clea" for short) and I am very interested in your pendants. How much do you charge?

Thank you! I love your daughters name! The pendants are all one of kind so the prices range from $25-$35 each. I'm sold out right now but I will post when I have more.
