Holiday 2014

Thank you so much for a wonderful 2014 - my 10th year in business!  I'll be working and shipping until the last minute, here is my shipping schedule:

For stock US orders hoping to be received before Christmas, please order before 12/18.  I will ship until 12/19 via USPS Priority Mail or FedEx for larger orders/platters, but that can take 2-4 days in transit once I pack and ship (shipping from just outside Chicago). 
Arrangements can be made for home/studio pickup from 12/15-12/19 in Oak Park, IL, please email me via the Contact link at the top.  I have shows in Chicago on 12/13-14 and 12/20 (see Events for details) for any last minute shopping needs (I'll be bringing limited stock, so please contact me if there's something special you'd like me to bring).

I will be out of the studio from 12/20-1/4, but answering emails every few days.  Orders placed during this time will ship after I return. 

Happy holidays and best wishes for a healthy & happy 2015!

Custom Mini Pendant


Mini fused glass pendants - small (between 5/8 and 1"*) square, 1/4" thick fused glass square.

Sterling silver bail is securely glued to the back, then hung on an 18" ball chain*, (you can also cut it to make it shorter if you like - please include a note if you need it longer than 18"). This design comes standard with the color shown in the picture, but you can get a different color by including it in the comments field when ordering. I carry green, purple, dark blue, turquoise blue, yellow, orange, red, white and black.

*I am phasing out the adjustable 16-18" chain with removable 2" section (totalling 18") - you may receive either with or without 2" section depending on chain color, but the chain will be 18" either way.

Send me an image, and (in most cases) I can silkscreen it onto the color glass of your choice. Please email the image to me first at laurie(at)kiku-co(dot)com to see if I can work with it, and we can go from there. Image should be high-contrast, (light grays areas don't print, all darker grays will print - there is no middle gray) and not copyrighted by anyone other than you. I can print one color 'ink' (the black part of your image) onto one color of glass. The ideal image size is 300dpi, about 2x2", and something I can open in Photoshop (.jpg, .tiff, .psd etc.).  I will email you a mock-up with your image/color ideas and ordering instructions.  Once a design is worked out and agreed upon, you can go ahead and order it here, noting the design + colors in the comments field (ie "bird platter, brown on ivory, red border"). I can get started as soon as I've received payment.  Custom work is not returnable.

Here are a few examples on my Flickr page of my custom pieces.
