So let me know what you think if anything.
- I know this isn't fused glass but I just finished this, too!

The soul has reasons that reason cannot fathom.
Well I have been trying to improve my glass skills and make something that doesn't look like everything else out there...Quite a task, as they say "Everything has been done"
Hopefully working with glass and metal, there is still a few things that has not yet been done .
Oils is hopeless. LOL even when I found a site with images of nakedsnails, those colourful one that live at the bottom of the sea, and asked to use them as inspiration, I got a nice email back saying "please do, you're not the first to ask" LOL
I found the combination of metal and glass interesting. The shapes are good but as the other person said they might be a bit too sharp. Could you cover the metal with transparent glass, maybe. That might make a nice effect. It all depends on whether you want the pieces to be decorative or used as jewellery.
My favourite was the mask )))) I've never seen anything like it. Love the mosaic. And how it isn't symmetrical. Nice touch with the shell. What are the mediums on that one.
At any rate it is very soft and the ladies that work at the artists' co-op where I have my stuff told me about people rubbing it on their faces in disbelief. So you're not alone.
Trine-The mask I made out of plaster bandaging and cardboard and paper clay to keep the weight down and then covered it with glass and grouted it. I'm glad you like it -I wasn't sure if it was too crafty and accidentally loaded the pic in with the jewelry stuff.
the copper is a ribbon, very soft indeed.
That changes it.
Then the seemingly spikyness can be kept and make a very noticeable contrast to the smooth glass, in other words - something different - which I think was one of your goals. )))
I procured at a metals junk yard
Junk yards, boot sales and similar are great places to find interesting stuff. I know many who find their frames there and do them up.

I do a lot of photography and I get my frames in junk shops and yard sales or anywhere I can get a deal. Iredo them also-generally I get a better quality than I can afford new anyway.
Great work on all the jewelry. It's fun to see the new things you're coming up with. As far as the mosaic, that looks like a lot of work! Tiny pieces thoughtfully placed. I like the shell in the forehead that almost looks like a third eye or like your mosaic piece just had an amazing idea.
So do you sell your jewelry?
There is 21 artists and we all work one day a month, pay $20.00 for our space & 10% of sales to the local womens' group that started the whole thing( and manage it). The nice thing is they use the money for charity and that makes me feel good too!
The mosaics are a lot of work but I love doing them. Don't get the money I'd like to for them but nobody gets paid for their time! Here's another piece I did but I'm keeping it for my reflecting pool that I also made.

It has the same interesting charachteristica as the mask.
What is the shiny thing on top?
Thanks for sharing
