Recently, I have been learning to fuse fine silver bezels around art glass that I cut and shape. I use a butane torch, Fretz stakes and hammers and other metalsmithing tools to create these complicated and beautiful art glass pendants!
You can see a finished pendant in the picture above. Here are some photos of the steps to make it:
