Make a handful of glass "gems" in a small kiln using frit, confetti, stringers and dichroic glass. Learn basic techniques for fusing glass into pendants, earrings, pins, tie tacks, etc. Each student will design 6-8 glass gems. Jewelry findings will be available for purchase from the instructor at the last class. The last hour of the first class is spent minding the kiln to see when the gems are fused. This is optional for students but many will want to stay and see the whole process.
