Its fun making up new rocks!ruby and cobalt geode by Jenie Yolland

Its fun making up new rocks!  These are so much fun to make.  I wonder if one day I’ll run a workshop where  you can make your own rocks or geodes.   square image of crimson heart under glass - Copy (2)But let me go back a bit. First of all I started making these hearts, red hearts, toffee coloured hearts, monochrome hearts …

… green hearts, multicoloured hearts – I made lots of hearts and then I thought I could use the same technique to create an amethyst in glass.

That’s where the idea came from …

Here is the first one I made using lavender, purple, grape and a touch of ruby glass pieces.

And here’s the top of it: I think it looks a bit like the top of a wave, what do you think?

The cobalt geode was sold recently at the Bolin Bolin Gallery Exhibition.

The next one I made is ruby and a touch of cobalt, (it’s in Hong Kong now) with new owners who have backlit it in their foyer.

I do hope you like my adventures into Geology. Do you have some suggestions of what colour combinations I should do next?  I really look forward to hearing your suggestions!
