I love Thimbles! I#39;ve collected them for years, so I decided to make them out of glass just like my beads.
This thimble is a Floral thimble featuring 2 big yellow colored sunflowers quot;growingquot; around the outside.
It measures 27mm tall and 24 mm wide.
It is made with a white glass base upon which different colored enamels were applied. Clear glass was added and the flowers were quot;plantedquot;. A ring of hand pulled glass twistie was placed at the base of the thimble. Very pretty!
All my Thimbles are made with Effetre, Moretti, Vetrofond, Lauscha, Devardi and Ornela glass rods or a combination there of and have been properly annealed in a digitally controlled kiln overnight for lasting durability.
Each thimble is individually hand made, detailed and signed by glass artist, Colleen Schroll. It is a unique, one of a kind thimble and no two are exactly alike
The thimbles were made by myself in my little studio right in the middle of cow country in Missouri. I#39;ve been making beads and glass pens for over 20 years now and enjoy every minute I can get at the torch. I just recently added thimbles to my glass play and really enjoy thinking up new designs for such a small space. Although I usually can grab about two hours in the evening to devote to beads and things.
Thanks for looking
