I asked my old friend Rhona, at Ritzy Glass, to make some sewing-themed decorations. Aren't they fab! These are totally unique and not available anywhere else.
Each decoration is approximately 6cm square, and made by hand in Scotland with fused glass with a metal hanging loop and a ribbon. Rhona starts off by cutting 2 squares of the clear glass, and firing them at 815°C (!) for 12 hours to fix the hanging loop in place. The opal glass "reel" is added, and the glass "thread" which has been shaped over an open flame to get the curvy tail. Then the whole thing gets fired for another 12 hours.
The colours in the photos are as accurate as we can make them, but may vary depending on your screen settings.
By the way I'm not meaning that Rhona is old, just that we've known each other for 30 years. We worked together as fresh-out-the-packet solicitors, and now we're working together in our creative jobs - that's so satisfying! You can check out Rhona's other work here.
