    Assortment of colorful fused glass cabochons, pendants and ring
    Description

    Learn how to make a unique and colorful fused glass cabochon.  Each piece is formed into a domed circle or oval resulting in a unique, one-of-a-kind glass cabochon.  Small chunks of glass, when fired to a full fuse, melt and round out in much the same way as a small, melting chunk of ice turns into a round drop of water. During this workshop you will learn the basics of fused glass, different types of glass and how to cut glass. Your finished cabochons would be ideal to use to make a ring or pendant in Janet Ryan's metalsmithing workshop in January and March. No experience required.

    • Your cabochons will be ready for pick up in approximately one week.
