Fusing with Brass Loops
Fusing brass loops into recycled glass artwork is relatively easy and is a great way to add loops for wind-chimes and sun-catchers. The loops are probably a bit too chunky for jewelry, unless you’d doing industrial style jewelry, then you’re good to go.
Begin with solid brass plumbers chain (available at the hardware store, or online). The chain must be solid brass, not brass plated steel.

Cut the loops
Glue the loops onto your glass
Stack your glass
Your fused piece can then be incorporated into a larger piece or you can add a string for hanging.
