Fused Glass Wind Chimes

For many years fused glass has been explored in arts and crafts. It has been developed into numerous other types of items, for example, home decor, plates, bowls, and various types of jewelry. If jewelry making is your passion, you may want to make fused glass pendants by using your artistic ability.
Get these materials and tools:
- Kiln
- Glass in sheets in your choice of colors
- Glass cutter
- Glass cutter oil
- Glue
- Wire
- Bails
- Nippers
- Breaking pliers
- Running pliers
Using a glass cutter and nippers, cut sheets of glass into the desired shapes. Put the shapes together in a design you like with glue to hold them together for a little while. Keep it still for a bit.

  1. I would love to have some of these Wind Chimes in my garden we get a lot of sunlight during the day so these would make some great colourful patterns. Though my garden is very windy. I was wondering if these glass wind chimes are made from toughened glass?
