Make A Bent Glass
Stringer Pendant

Make a bent glass stringer pendant from two pieces of colored glass fired in a glass fusing kiln.

This item is made from Bullseye opaque yellow. The stringer is used as a design feature fused to the yellow base layers.

You may need to play around with bent stringers until you have the shape you like. You can change the colors and sizes around to suit yourself.

There is no set size or colors for this pendant, multiple stringers can be used if desired.

To make this project you will need the following:

  • Two pieces of yellow Bullseye glass.
  • One piece of black stringer.
  • Thin fire shelf paper or primed shelf.
  • Candle or butane torch.

Step 1. Cut two pieces of yellow Bullseye about 2 inches x 1/2 inch.

Step 2. Follow the instructions in the following stringers video and bend to shape.

You can experiment with different shapes until you are satisfied.

Step3. Clean and dry pieces completely.

Step 4. Stack the two layers with the bent piece onto the prepared shelf and place into a glass fusing kiln.Bring up to fusing temperature quickly and hold for about 10 minutes.

Step 5. Check to ensure the item has fully fused and is nicely rounded. The stringer should be fully fused into the yellow base and will have spread slightly.

Do not over heat with this design style or the stringers may spread too far.Switch off and allow fusing kiln to cool to room temperature.

Step 6. Using a piece of sand paper roughen an area on the back of the pendant, use epoxy adhesive to glue on a bail to the item.

Different colors and shapes allow you to make some very unique pieces of fused jewelry.

A larger base can be drilled and a jump ring fitted rather than gluing on a bail.

Transparent glasses will also work very well with this design.

Note. If you wish to contour fuse the item see Stringer Pendant for details on contour fusing.
