Combining Fused Glass with Soldered Silver

After weekends at Judith Conway's Vitrum Studio for fused glass classes, I'm now at The Art League for silver jewelry with Tina Chisena for the next two months. I hope to execute the designs in the photos below, but for this weekend, I'd like to do pendants to take to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival next weekend. The pendants - intended for wool lovers, spinners, weavers and knitters - are made of glass with silver foil inclusion in the image of a sheep's silhouette. The prototype will be worn by the Fluff and Nonsense group participating in the MSWF's Sheep-to-Shawl competition on Sunday, May 3.

Rough designs...
