I'm so very excited to share with you that I am now selling some of my pieces online at www.cynthiaweber.com. The collection is still in the works, but much of it will showcase my recycled glass pieces. Personally, I love the organic and natural quality of Indonesian recycled glass. It comes in a variety of colours, but I especially love the muted greens. These colours remind me of an ocean breeze and look so beautiful when paired with glass pearls and shell.
The process for making recycled glass beads is not particularly easy. While there are different methods used to make recycled glass beads, the overall process is the same. Glass is collected, sorted and crushed into a fine powder. This powder is then placed in molds and fired in a hot kiln. Some shape the glass after it's been fired. Others simply use the mold to hold the shape. No two beads are exactly the same and they are all made by hand. No chemicals are added to create the beautiful beach glass effect of the beads.
Owning a recycled glass piece of jewelry allows you to truly feel like you own a unique piece of art. While most of my designs are one-of-a-kind, each recycled glass bead is also a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Below is one of my charm bracelets featured at www.cynthiaweber.com.
