Fine Silver Eyelets

And more experimenting with fine silver findings from Metal Clay Findings.

These are fine silver eyelets (although they are confusingly called jump rings on the packaging and their website.) I just got a spot on the side of the bead nice and hot and, holding the eyelet (which has a post on it) with a pair of pliers - pushed it into the hot glass.

You can see it got a little blobby from my over-heating the silver a little as I tried to make sure it was in there securely.

However, now that it is out of the kiln - it seems quite secure. This opens up some design possibilities from hanging tassels of beads off lampwork beads all sorts of other ideas. Hmmmmm.
