New Inspiration from Broken Pendant

It’s been a while since I wrote a post here.  Personal  health issues have kept me busy with hospital visits and drained much of my enthusiasm and energies.    While it is  ongoing, I’m feeling better and back with new inspiration. 

I was recently contacted by a customer who asked if I would consider wrapping a broken glass pendant. It was a cherished item from a first Valentine’s Day gift from his/her significant other who was now their wife.

I was afraid to wrap it at first since I’d never wrapped anything glass.  I was afraid I’d break it.  It was slippery and curved.  I decided to wrap it in square, copper wire which is also not a shape of wire I’m comfortable with.

I’m glad I did wrap it and they were delighted.  It felt good to be a tiny part of that couples journey .

    Hi!! Welcome back! I’m glad you are feeling better. I was doing poorly, too and as soon as I started to feel a little better. the muse came right back.

    I love what you did with this glass and the sentiment is so sweet. I know exactly how challenging glass can be, as a former glassblower. Your pendant doesn’t look like you had any trouble, at all.

    I hope you get well stay well…
