I use the new Beadalon gold flexible wire and use it as a single bead on the
necklace. These are really pretty.

Ok, but the ones I have are like...hmmmm...how do I describe them?

Well, they're triangular in shape, very thinly sliced, and more like a wedge of
pie shape with a VERY large hole in the middle...

They won't work threaded on anything...I'm thinking I'm going to weave some
peyote strips and then weave the strips in and through...they're....cumbersome,
but loverly!!

How about hanging them on silver or gold-filled chains for earrings?

Cheers,

What about stacking a few on wire, and attaching it much like charms to a
bangle? Or, making one heck of a light catcher by stringing and knotting them
at random intervals on a whole bunch of strings, then hang that puppy in the
window.

both good ideas...I'm going to first try doing wrapped loops on em, and hanging
them in clumps from earwires...and bracelets..

funny you should mention suncatchers...I have some hanging in my orange trees
out back that I made a LEAST three years ago from some very cheapo beads...plus
some great colored glass donuts, and some other *stuff*, on wire...and they're
a delight every time I look outside. I love hanging junk from my trees!!

My favorite use for furnace glass is to take fine chain, snip it into
1 inch pieces, wire-wrap a swarovski crystal onto 1 end of a section,
thread the furnace glass onto the piece of chain and then wire-wrap
another crystal onto the other end of the piece of chain, and repeat.
In the end you have a chain necklace with crystals interspersed and
pieces of furnace glass sliding around between the crystals. very
fluid, very pretty. I love jewelry that has motion to it.

What I was describing is like hanging them on a chain. This new gold soft
flex wire looks like fine gold chain and look wonderful with just one bead
hanging from it.
