Glass Eyes II

More about the process:

This Craftsman was making beads and pendants by taking a short section of a glass rod and setting it on another piece of glass and putting several such assemblies into a temperature controlled oven. A while later out comes coin sized pendants with a fancy design that was the section of glass rod. The glass sheet and section of colored rod are melted together as one and the glass "slumps" into a nice curved smooth oval. The glass rods with the design that is extruded from end to end are called "Millefiori." (Various spellings exist for the same thing)
