Cutest Mini Mushroom Earrings are made on the torch. Using rods of glass in a rainbow of colours over a gas & oxygen flame. Heating the rod over the flame onto a mandrel that has been prepared with bead release, so that we are able to release our little mushroom off the mandrel. Once we have the glass mushroom earrings shape, with a stringer, we add the little dots. Now that the mushroom is complete, it is placed into the annealer, to slowly cool down over 4-5 hours. Then we are ready to open the annealer to reveal our rainbow of gorgeous Mini Mushrooms.
I loved making these cute little glass mushroom earrings, it’s very relaxing, and visually magical. If you’ve ever looked into a candle’s flame and gone to your mind’s eye, you’ll love flame working like I do, (along with many, many others!). So, are they magic mushrooms? I think so!
The mini mushroom earrings are sold individually.
Wish her favourite colour, and the look on her face when she sees these lil’ cuties will be gold! Merry Christmas.
