Honeycomb Blown Glass Pendant
(Washington State, USA)
Honeycomb glass pendants are fun, colorful, and meticulous to make.
Using a colored glass tube and a large flame on an oxygen and propane torch, I blow out a thin glass bubble on the end of my tube.
Using a smaller flame I lay down small dots of clear on and around the bubble. I spin the bubble in the flame and melt in all the dots.
I blow into the bubble and shrink it back down. I then flatten the back and add a glass loop so it can be worn as a pendant.
What I like about this design is the depth you can create with something as simple as clear dots.
