MAD Hatter

IMG_0089Mad as a Hatter, so goes the expression, and Mad Margie has been making quite a few hats this year! some are crochet, some knitted, and some she knits in a really large size and then felts. Those hats are a little too warm to wear in the summer time–but the lighterweight chapeausĀ  she makes areĀ  accessories that make a colorful statement. Take a look at more hats on her new MAD Hatter page here.

Mad Margie is getting ready for Spring! She’s cleaned out the studio, rearranged the work areas, and taken classes at the recent huge Glass Expo in Las Vegas. She’s making all sorts of new goodies.

She’s also got a brand new business card, and is putting up some very lovely pendant necklaces at her Etsy store this week. Check back later to see them all. Each glass pendant has a gold fill or sterling bail and a 18″ long color coordinated cord of twisted polyester with a ball and loop closure. It comes in a cute little bag—all ready for gifting on Mother’s Day or other occasions!

Stick ’em up!

Mad Margie makes magnets. Like jewelry for your refrigerator, these beautiful fused class cabochons with dichroic accents can brighten up the kitchen.

Margie uses the cabochons she creates in making pins, pendants, and magnets like these when she’s not working on bowls, plates, and window hangings. Glass adds a sparkle that you just cant get with other materials.

Why settle for ‘fridge magnets that advertise the local dry cleaner or pizza place when you can have little objects of art instead?

Mad Margie serves up something hot and tasty while enjoying an unusually mild winter. Here’s an entire plate full of fused glass cabochons ready to be made into jewelry, magnets, or embellishments for mosaics. She sells cabochons, bowls and finished jewelry through Bead Lounge in Longmont Colorado and in her Etsy Store online.

This beautiful pink, purple and white fused glass heart is ready for hanging from two metal loops embedded into the 96COE glass–it would be lovely in a window. Outlined with raised glass dots, this heart is sturdy and yet can still be broken if dropped, just like those in love! Keep it safe and suspended in a window for all to see and show off your heart all year round.

Valentine Red Hots Dish
