Stained Glass Jewelry by Ofelway

I always assumed real stained glass jewelry would be near impossible. All that soldering of small pieces of glass!  But Ofeliya Chun of Ofelway proved me wrong!  This Russian artist says she is the third generation to get into the soldering art. Her grandfather, father and brother all solder. For her, picking up and using the soldering iron felt right.

Her amazing talent for working with such small pieces of glass shows most clearly in her scarab beetle brooches.

As with the traditional stained glass technique albeit on a smaller scale,  Ofeliya has to hand cut tiny bits of glass, grind the edges smooth then add the copper foil before soldering.  She also adds patina. The result is gorgeous.
