Blue Beauty - The First Wire Wrapped Crinkelized Pendant


A little while ago you may recall I did a test run of the new Crinklized Dichroic from Coatings by Sandburg (CBS). They've been 'patiently' waiting for me to start wire wrapping them and I finally have. This is the first one, and I'm calling it Blue Beauty. Pictures really don't do it justice. This new crinklized glass is so beautiful. It's richly colored and has a lot of sparkle. This is a deep turquoise blue. Hope you like it as much as I do!

Kathleen, this is fabulous! The wrapping is incredible! Love the twist wire you used & the way you finish the wrap. So creative. Love it!

I love it too! And I agree with Sophie, the wrapping is so cool! The combo of the wrap and the glass itself gives this a really majestic kind of quality.

Thanks Sandy & Karen!

Boy oh boy all of you have sure given my ego a boost on this one. Thank you so much for your kind comments about the wire wrap on this one.

What a wonderful network of artist friends I have. :)

This glass sure looks different from your others - wish I could see the real thing. The color is really rich. And yes, the wrapping is awesome!

Hey Deborah!
Yes this glass is different. It has a slightly rough surface that happens as the glass 'crinkles' and I think that is why it is so brilliant in the light because there are more surfaces (so to speak) to catch and reflect the light. Glad you like it. Thanks.
