Red Cross - When I broke this bowl, it broke into some beautiful shapes, however it took me quite a while to figure out how the shapes would fit to resemble a cross design. The locket provided hangs in the center of the cross. I decided to add three long narrow pieces in the back to reinforce the image of a cross. I decided to add a few accents from the peach colored Jell-O bowl on the ends and added some fuchsia red mini glass gems around the center to emphasize the center. I placed hooks in the back to hang it on a while, and a hook at the top (with chain) if you want to hang it in a window.
This is the bowl I broke to make the cross.

Peach and Purple Cross - The peach bowl broke in various pieces, some were peach in color with deep ridges and others were of the edge of the bowl which had colors of fluorescent peach/pink. I matched this with glass in a comparable purple color and added some fluorescent glass with purple/green colors. The orchid piece is the focal point of this cross. I added rustic peach colored glass gems around the center. I had to make sure when I soldered the pieces of glass with ridges, the pieces all went the same way but still were balanced. I placed hooks in the back to hang it on a while, and a hook at the top (with chain) if you want to hang it in a window.
