Friday Favorite #12--Kath's Kreations

Dichronic glass intrigues me.  I find it very interesting how it changes when it is fused and heated.  The colors are so vibrant and wonderful.  I've seen a lot of dichronic glass in the 20+ years I have been doing craft shows, and admittedly, most of it looks pretty much the same.  It's basic shapes with a loop for a pendant attached.  Pretty, for sure, but not that unusual. 

So imagine how delighted I was when I ran across Kath's Kreations on etsy!  Yes, Kathy has some of the more typical shapes and styles, like these lovely earrings:

But, even better, she has many unusual and interesting pieces as well.  I love how she has combined other materials like wire and precious metal clay to create wonderful, wearable works of art.  Here are a few of my favorites:
Precious Metal Clay Dichroic Glass Pendant and Necklace
Dichroic Glass Wired Pendant & Necklace
Dichroic Glass Wire Wrapped Pendant & Necklace
Dichroic Glass Pendant & Necklace
Dichroic Glass Wired Pendant & Necklace
Don't you agree that Kathy's dichronic glass work is not like any you have ever seen?  I love it!  I invite you follow this link to her etsy shop and check it all out.  She has nearly 500 pieces in her shop, so obviously, I'm barely scratching the surface here. 
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Mine will be a working's that time of year!
Oh, and in the spirit of the quickly approaching Halloween holiday, I thought I would throw in this 'bonus item' from Kath's Kreations:
