Well hi Carla,
Yes indeed, I am that person setting my dichroic as if it were a
fine gem. To me it is gem like. No glue backs for me, only
fabricated or cast.
Your comment about glass being chicklet like has been one of my
favorite lines. I love that and it's stuck with me. Our glass can
be and deserves to be so much more than glued on. Remember, it's all
about creativity. Our stone carvers have also influenced me to begin
carving my glass, making it truly three dimensional. Carved dichro
is gorgeous and no two pieces are alike. I'm beginning my first
inlay project as well. Figure if stones can be inlayed, glass can
be as well. Why not?
I trust that rotten hubby Dave is doing well.
All the best
