Question Metal clay and glass

I'd like to incorporate the two in jewelry. In what ways are people doing this? Obviously the sky is the limit, but I'm looking for ideas and inspiration. Would I use beads? "Marbles"? Is it easy to make cabechon type "stones" with the glass?

(Btw, I'll be using boro)

Thanks in advance for sharing!

The "quick" answer is yes, you can do this!

You have to do the research though to insure your not going to run into compatibility issues depending on what temps and type of PMC you'll be using, but if you're using boro, you should be ok!

I recommend getting a book or if your local community collage offers PMC classes, it's a great way to start.

I learned from this book - lots of neat ideas and examples too: http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-P...3&keywords=PMC

If you check Amazon, just pop "PMC" into the search and you'll find lots of great resource books! http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...d-keywords=PMC
