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

Tidbits:
When we say our jewelry is double wrapped under the crimp covers, that means that the wire runs through the beads, through a silver cylinder/crimp tube, up and through the cylinder again, and then the tube/cylinder
is "crimped" down with special pliers. This assures  that the cable wire will not slide out and come undone. Then the crimp tube is covered with a "crimp cover". The nylon coated cable wire has 26 lb. test weight. the weight it would take to break it. Like its name suggests, this jewelry wire contains 49 miniature strands of stainless steel. It is nylon coated for increased kink resistance, longevity, and abrasion resistance  Findings are jewelery clasps, crimps, covers, and jump ring and jewelery finishing pieces. We use sterling silver!
