colourful fused glass

If colour is your name and you love the vibrant hues that reflect your mood and style, then you gotta check out the gorgeous fused glass jewelry at Amy Burhoe. This is the brainchild of a husband and wife team who handcraft each piece of colourful jewelry in their home studio in Rhode Island.

But first, let’s understand what fused glass really is. From the website of Amy Burhoe, I gather that it is actually layers of glass melted together using a kiln which is a specialized type of oven. Many techniques can be used to alter the glass and the process can last anywhere from 6 to 24 hours! At the peak temperature (usually around 1475 degrees!) the glass is molten red. All I can say is I am totally melted away by some of the awesome colour combinations – they are just so pretty!
