Abstract Glass And Sand Dollar Pendants....

Yes, I'm still on vacation and having a great time running around enjoying myself. We've gone into the city a few times for shows and visits and this week I have a trip planned to my favorite Orchid nursery in PA to spend some of my birthday money from last week. I couldn't stay away from blog land though for a whole two weeks so this morning I've been visiting my blogging friends and also decided to list some of my new pendants that I finished before my vacation.

The pendant in the top photo is called: Nighttime Daisy and the one directly above is: Spirit Dancer. All of the pendants in this post are abstract and contemporary either on glass or sand dollars. All the glass pendants were first hand painted and then the paint was fused onto the glass so that the design would never come off.

Two sand dollars with abstract designs.... Twilight Silhouette above and Kaleidoscope below.

This pendant is Abstract Rose Garden and the one below is Floating Hearts. You can click any photo for a larger view. Before my vacation started I was also working on some double sided fused glass pendants. They are still waiting for bails to be attached and photographs to be taken so they will have to wait until after I return to my studio to make their appearance.

I've taken some nice photos over my vacation that I will be showing upon my return next week. In the mean time, I hope everyone is enjoying summer. The above art pendants are all available on my new ETSY site: www.artfulcreations.etsy.com .

Hi Ruth,
These art pendants are just gorgeous.
They remind me of Murano Glass from Venice. Oh, I wish I had bought myself a couple while over there.
