Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I LOVE cobolt blue glass and the hints of color on this one look almost like pretty flowers on a vine. And to top it off you could make it smell that way too even, lol. Very awsome.

No, dammit, no! I went away for xmas and when I came back I found my roommate had moved out and she or whoever helped her move out (she had back problems) stole this necklace and one I was trying to sell on etsy as well as some medical insurance claims (to use for identity theft?). I'm really mad and sad at the same time. :tears: Of course I brought my computer with me, I always do when I go to visit my parents. I almost wore this necklace when I left. I changed my mind. I decided to wear my snowflake necklace since it was xmas. I just got some peppermint essential oils to put in it for xmas.

Oh No!!
That's awful!
Wow, I hope nothing comes of the medical insurance thing! You should let them know to check with you if anyone tries to claim anything!

I found that it had rolled under my printer (the one you made) this morning. :) Well she finally answered my phone calls. She claims her friend's little girl took the other necklaces and that she would mail them back to me. That still doesn't explain the medical insurance forms though. :(

Just realized another one of my favorite necklaces was gone. Fortunately this is one that I made and I still have enough of the beads left to replicate it. The one that was for sale on etsy had a large piece of quartz on it which I don't have another one of.

Well... you call it cobalt... but it's blue... and you mentioned glass somewhere... :?

Could you just tell me how you made it? :)
Reply
:iconellyloo:
ellyloo Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2008
Sure! I didn't know how much you wanted to know.

I melt glass to form beads/shapes on a mandrel. (a steel 'stick';).
I wrap the molten glass around the mandrel and 'sculpt' what I need to make, adding different colours/designs as needed. The finished product then sits in a kiln annealing (a slow controlled cooling off time) so taht it doesn't crack from the stress of hot glass inside vs cold glass cooling on the outside. The kiln brings everything up to the same temp, and then degree by degree cools it off.

This is called cobalt, simply because the colour of blue glass I used was labeled "Cobalt blue".

Oh! :love: I adore this! I have a fondness for small glass bottles... I dig the swirling colors. Are they meant to fruits, or abstract pretty designs? I wish I had a few of these to wire...

^^ You're welcome! By the way, is that seriously glass chain in your gallery? Like really connected? If it it, that is the most awesome thing I have seen this month, jeez. How the heck do you make something like that?
Reply
:iconellyloo:
ellyloo Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2008
Ben Evers is the artist for that one....
Yep it actually connected! It was fully functional. The chain went from 2 glass handcuffs to a glass neck collar. He had a case and foam to carry it in.

I'm pretty sure he made it all by hand... measuring th elinks to get them right...but no molds or anything were involved. I've watched him and guys like him work...they're crazy with the intricate measurments, making sure things will fit and things are equal...

The cool thing with that kind of glass (Boro/Pyrex) is that you can make a long term project out of it. You can make a few links, put it away, make a few more.... put it away... with soft glass like what I work with, you have to do it while it's all hot the first time.

What fantastic colors! The cobalt color makes a fantastic backdrop to the beautiful patterns of the other colors!! :heart:

It's very fun, because I'm never sure just WHAT those colours (on top of the cobalt) will turn out to be on different base colours of glass!
