 Glass Made in Our Garage Studio 
The Giddy Up team of two at work, when we're not at our day jobs.
 
All of our glass is made with compatible system 96 fusible glass. It is special glass and is not the same as what you see in stained or plate glass. If wire is used it is generally copper or stainless steel nylon coated stringing wire. Most of our accents are cut by hand but the intricate shapes are generally cut using a Taurus 3 glass saw. I enjoy  painting or drawing the 14k gold & glass enamel by hand, using multiple layers of glass, and dichroic/metallic glasses which can be costly. We enjoy experimenting and I do enjoy the bubbles that are produced in the glass by speeding up the fusing time. We like to keep the jewelry items affordable and hope you find something here for yourself, your friends, or family that you can enjoy for years to come. I have been told that the pictures never do the fused glass justice and I think folks are right. When you get your piece out into the sunlight you will be amazed!

Bracelets & Sets
All of our bracelets are strung on 19 strand, nylon coated, cable wire. The clasps, jump rings, crimps, and covers are all sterling silver for a professional look that won't fall apart.






The Blue Royale Set starts with purple, dichroic, transparent and iridescent frit/crushed glass, that was first fused into bars. The bars were cut and then set upon the rich, royal blue, iridescent glass, and fused again. The second fusing of the bars to iridescent glass, causes the glass to form giant baubles that have depth and texture. In any light, and in person, the sheen is more shimmery and the deep color is spectacular. The matching ring has a plated adjustable ring, while the scarf/suit pin, has a bar and hasp closure.

Bead Necklaces 
   
     These are stunning alone or layered, but are made specifically for our fused glass pendants with sterling silver bails. They are made to slide right through their 4.3mm bail opening. Quality made with 3mm Czech faceted, high fire polished, aurora borealis beads. All of the trigger clasps, jump rings, crimps, crimp covers, and 2" chain extenders are .925 sterling silver.
These necklaces are approx. 17.5" long with a 2" chain extender so they can be worn from 17.5" to 19.5" depending on the pendant you are wearing, from higher to lower on the neckline. I am very impressed with these beads!
    The matching bracelets are approx. 7.5" with all of the same sterling silver findings. Like the necklaces, they are strung on 19 strand, .61mm stainless, nylon coated, Beadalon wire, and double wrapped under the crimp covers for strength and security.
