Flameworking a Flower - Step by Step Tutorial

The Glass Horse Pendant Tutorial

I love to create this very litte horse pendants but they are a formidable challenge
and so I am able to do not more than one or two of them on one day. Then I have to go back to other sculptures and figurines because my eyes are to tired then for a third.

I will list some of my recently created horse pendants within the next days, but if you have fallen in love with these little beauties, you can here also take a commission and tell me what color (it can have more than one mixed and marbleized in body and mane) or what posture it shall have (in this case, please send me a photo). So you will get your stunning OoAK jewelry.

Please note this:
Glass can break but normally not while you wear it, because ist ist not nearly as fragile as it seems and your soft skin will also protect it. But it will not resist falling on hard ground or any grinding (so please keep it seperate from stone- and metalljewelry.

If you keep this in mind, your little horse has a very good prospect of getting very, very old.

length of pendant: 0.7 - 1 inches (nostrils to tip of the tail)

I am brimming over with excitement about meeting Eunsuh Choi on May 11, 2013.
