What to name these charms – sea urchins? Magic Eyes? Pinwheels? Pinwheels won out (for now). These fun shapes evoke many names and hopefully inspiration, too.
I created each charm on a colored base of glass. For three of them, I added a dot of white. The pinwheel shape is a striped cane created by me and pressed into the base glass. The front of each charm was capped in clear glass (dome shape). The back of each charm is smooth colored glass: 2 peach, one black, one orange, one red.
These charms may be worn as a set or used for several projects. Additional design ideas – zipper pull, purse charm, or knitting markers. So many possibilities!
Each charm was created by melting glass directly on copper wire. Each charm is fully fused to the copper, kiln-annealed, and a durable design. All copper has been polished to a high shine finish. Keep metal shiny with a metal polishing cloth.
