I can't wait to see them.  I checked out your shop and your work is really something else.

Here's another one, I got some flower pendants that I'll post once I get pictures of them. This is based on John Kobuki's rose demo. Still haven't nailed that tiered effect that he gets in his marbles

Thanks! Ya I'm experimenting with encasing one color in another, I wanna try red on white next, I've seen some people do it and it looks really good.

Working on larger pendants, a bit more eye catching. One thing I want to try is a flower marble with snow falling on it, we'll see how that turns out.

Made a reallly big marble today, but I won't have it out of the kiln until tuesday. It's almost twice the diameter of the others, which leads to cool magnification effects due to thickness of glass.

Here's a pendant I haven't put up for sale yet:

K this next one blows the other ones out of the water. Of course there are still things to improve upon, but I'm very very happy with it. It's also only my second large diameter marble (1.75"). Check out my website in my signature for more pics.

Hey haven't updated in a while, here's a new flower marble by me, plus a frog pendant. IT was kinda cool because I thought it would be fun to get fan requests about what I should make next, and I'm really in love with this pendant. Right now I have to start making christmas stuff plus other projects so I don't have time for requests, but I will def do it again in the future.
