First Attempt at a fused pendant

About this design:

First attempt at a tack fused small pendant (for me)! We have a glass studio only a mile from my home ( how cool is that ) I know a little piece of green fell off from my design when it went into the kiln as I had a small piece on the upper right. It was fun and I never had cut glass before. A SS bail is glued on.

    Hi Kitty Mom—I actually have it on today on a SS chain that you can put extenders on? For some reason the name of it has just left my brain. Have been getting compliments. Thank you for yours too :)
