Our Glass 
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!

- People are always telling me, "You should charge more!" I love creating and the whole idea is that everyone can afford a piece of wearable art. - Michelle

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.

Cherry Red (one necklace available)

Dichroic Vertical Glass Channel Bead Bracelets- These dichroic beads have been formed by running a piece of thick fiberglass paper between the clear background pieces and dichroic pieces of glass so they can be strung on Beadalon 19 cable wire which is covered with fifty genuine 4mm and 6mm aurora borealis Swarovski Crystals. The  textures and vibrant colors are stunning! The bracelet is finished with a sterling silver trigger clasp, a closed jump ring, two silver crimps and two crimp covers at each end. The finished wire runs through both crimps and covers for added security. The bracelet is approximately 7 1/4" long and fabulous!
     The next bracelet set is made the same way, but has black backed glass, with alternating jet, clear aurora borealis, and vitrail/stained glass effect swarovski crystals. sold

Groovy Glass- How is it made?

Iridescent, dichroic, and opal glass is hammered and fused for 12 hours onto clear glass strips. Then the shapes are drawn & sawed out with a Taurus 3 glass saw by hand. Then the glass is fired again for 9 hours to give all the edges a high fire polish.

** Stainless Steel 18" nylon coated cable neck wire with barrel clasp. Simple and sharp looking to color coordinate your glass. $1.50 (four are available in clear/silver)

Clear/ Silver Colored


Saving Sand in a Bottle Set- That is, a flat bottle! This set is made with powdered .925 sterling silver and copper, fused between clear and blue Caribbean glass. The copper sinks to bottom of the clear glass while the powdered silver fuses between the two, creating the sand in the bottle effect. This set takes you right to the shore. Too bad you can't stick your toes in there! The approx. 1" by 1 1/8" pendant has a sterling silver bail and the earrings have .925 sterling French hook ear wires, with rubber clutches. The ring is mounted on a silver plated adjustable ring blank.(one set available) $25.00 SOLD
