Mother and Child Heart


05/30/09 – Mother and Child – An effortless, yet chic shape of a mother and child touching in such a way that the center of the design forms a heart pattern.  Be sure that your pieces are overlapping so that they fuse together, and place them so that the center of the piece forms a heart outline.  Since we are still in the month of May, this particular pattern is being added to the Mother’s Day page.

Crinkled dichroic glass still has that sparkle and shine, but has the added feature of bringing texture and depth to your fused glass pieces.
