Working with Glass Links

Last week, I debuted the Organic Glass Links - organic because the shape comes from the natural movement of the class in the flame - I don't use any tools or molds to form the links - I let the glass flow organically. When I create beads, I usually have an idea how to use them. I thought I'd show you one of the ways I thought you could use them. I pulled a couple of 15 to 18mm links out of the pile above - I chose two in shiny black. I made a set of earrings - I hand formed the earwires and used colored 1/2 inch jump rings to suspend them from the earwire - topped it off with an antique silver-dipped clay spacer and done. A nice beginner project. Sleek, organic and modern!

How would you use the glass links?
