How to make fused glass nuggets for use in glass jewelry and other glass fusing projects. Nuggets or little jewels as they are also called are simple to fuse in a kiln and can be used in a number of ways in jewelry designs.
They are usually comprised of two pieces of the same size, which are kiln fired to produce the finished shape. They do not need to be the same color; dichroic with a clear cover makes a nice jewel.
Fusing makes the piece contract, as it moves towards its natural 1/4-inch thickness it begins to assume a rounded shape.
