NFS Butterfly Pendant

My wife said I needed to scale down the size on my pendants. Here is one about 5X4 cm (2″X1.5″). It is hard to get the implosion stile to work very much smaller.

Here is one even smaller 3X2cm (1.5X7/8ths inches).

When sitting down to the bench torch I am presented with the conundrum of impromptu spontaneity versus carful planning. I suppose, at some point I will want to carefully plan out my next move but being relatively new to lampworking, not new to glass, I am inextricably drawn to the free flowing creative process with a minimum of restrictions. So, in some cases the technical details may have suffered for the occasional devine “happy accident” factor. Flame-working is so much more dynamic than kiln formed or fused glass. It is hard to reign in the free, painterly spirit, suppressed so long doing fused glass pieces.
