AAE Glass Gorgeous Fused Glass Jewelry Review and Giveaway!

My blog has moved to http://www.tenderallure.com/.  To keep up with my latest posts, outfits, giveaways, and more, check out my new blog!  I would love it if you could joined me at my new blog  :)

Hey everyone!


I recently came across a really cool site, AAE Glass.  AAE Glass offers fused glass decals, supplies, and jewelry as well as workshops and classes on how to make fused glass!

There are quite a few different themes for their fused glass jewelry, including Tree of Life, Exotic Animals & Limited Edition, Hand Etched, Beach Collection, Butterflies & Dragonflies, and more.  There are so many different colors and styles that there is something for everyone!

These are some pieces that really caught my eye!

You can learn how to make fused glass pieces at the AAE Glass Studio in Cape Coral, Florida.  They have a variety of classes to choose from in their teaching schedule!  Tanya, an instructor, teaches the fused glass techniques in 1,2, and 3 day workshops around the world.  Also, you should check out the AAE Glass blog because they have video and written tutorials for glass art!

I received this beautiful and unique necklace made by Tanya to review!





This necklace is amazing!  The pendant, which is about 1.6" in diameter, seems to be very well crafted and very intricate.  The black design of Herons by the beach is really pretty.  I especially like the background print behind the black herons.  I think it's so cool that there is a gradient effect of light to dark, especially right where the grass of the black design is located.  So, there is a darker, greenish hue below the grass print.  Above the grass print, it is a milky white with multicolored swirls.  The glistening swirls look like clouds in the sky.  This pendant also has a really nice weight to it.  It doesn't feel light like cheap plastic, but it's also not super heavy.  The silver omega chain is 16" long and comes with a 2" extender.  The chain seems to be very sturdy and it doesn't feel like I could break it.  The extender is a great feature because this necklace looks very different at different lengths. At the shorter lengths, this necklace looks more sweet and feminine.  At the longer lengths, this necklace looks more casual and chic.  On a longer chain, this necklace would look amazing with a simple maxi dress because it would give you that great, effortless bohemian look!

AAE Glass has generously offered to give away the same fused glass necklace I received to one lucky winner! Thanks, AAE Glass!
