About this Glass Jewelry course

Learn to make all sorts of recycled fused glass jewelry with Jodi. We'll begin by learning how to make recycled glass kiln formed beads and focal pieces using fusing, casting and other techniques. To add to the fun, we'll be using bottle glass, window glass, glass dishes and plates, and the occasional broken vintage piece that is just too pretty to throw away! After we've made a variety of glass pieces, we'll create a variety of projects using premade findings, and then moving on to creating your own findings using recycled materials and clever hardware hacks. Great fused glass course!
