Tempus Fugit Sub Mari... by janehamill
Tempus Fugit Sub Mari...
... or "Time Flies Under The Sea".

Having been a fan of the genre since I was very small (most of that time unaware there was a name for it), I've taken to tinkering with some Steampunk ideas, including this one.

Available under my "Steamjunque" persona on Etsy: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/steamjunq…

50mm (2-inch) lampwork art glass cabochons by janehamill
50mm (2-inch) lampwork art glass cabochons
An upgrade to my lampworking kit gave my torch a hotter flame, so I can melt more glass at once and work on bigger pieces.  Even then, it's still not quite hot enough to make shaping these 50mm cabs easy, so they require a little extra work.  Nearly 2 hours in the flame, then into the kiln for the initial annealing process.  After they've cooled, I clean them and pop them back into the kiln at a hotter temperature to smooth and round off the edges.

The finished cabs are so smooth and tactile, they're almost like touchstones.

The top two are already spoken for.  I'm working on making the third one into a pendant... unless a jewellery maker pops up and lets me know if they want to use it in their work first :)

Dragon's Eye Brooch, handmade glass cabochon by janehamill
Dragon's Eye Brooch, handmade glass cabochon
I've been practising making my Dragon's Eye cabochons a little larger because I found this commercially made backing and I knew the two would complement each other perfectly.  I had to finish it with a lot of cold working so that it fit but I think the extra work was worth it - I'm really pleased with the finished result!

It's currently available on Etsy here: www.etsy.com/uk/listing/256285…

My heaters have been delivered!  They're at my parents' house right now and I'm going to collect them on Saturday so next week I should be able to get back to my beloved glass - yay! :)

Fingers crossed I haven't forgotten how to make beads ;)

If you like looking at my work, please Flattr me - flattr.com/profile/janehamill - thank you :)

I'm an artist making handmade lampwork beads and jewellery in a small workshop at my home in Chorley, Lancashire in the North West of England.

I've always loved making things, right from an early age but when I discovered jewellery making I was hooked... then when the lampworking bug hit, there was no way out! :)

I hope you like my work - I believe my enthusiasm for what I do is reflected in my finished pieces. I derive great satisfaction from not only making my own jewellery with my own beads, but also from seeing my beads used in beautiful pieces of art made by fellow jewellery artists.

deviantWEAR sizing preference: XXL
