Enamored with Glass - part #4

Each year as I approach the new year I choose a word for the new year.
This past year's word was "Create".
In thinking about the word create this year I wanted to learn one new craft in which I had to create. I actually ended up learning two new crafts, both involving glass. I will share the other glass craft another day.
My friend, Teresa, has a glass studio in her basement and invited me to come and create.
What great fun to create these small pendants with glass and see what came out of the kiln. The firing smooths the edges and makes something rough into something beautiful.

As I sit here I am thinking the similarities in life.
As we walk through the fire we become more beautiful.
