Octopi Pendants

I tried a combination of materials to come up with some Octopi looking pendants. This first one is Murano glass that was a twisted wine stopper top that broke off. I melted it flat in the kiln and attached two sandblasted fork ends to it. One of them I used a little bit of the handle to curl over as the bail. I added a heavy chain to it and sold it the first night of the show.

That inspired me to create more.

The lighting is not so great in this photo, but the colors in the glass are just what I wanted for this piece.
