Creating Fused Glass Bracelets, Purse Hangers & More Using No Days Bailbond

To download the pdf, visit Streuter's project gallery.

 Aside from quickly adhering bails to cabochons to make pendants, No Days Bailbond can be used to attach cabochons to earring findings, rings, bracelets, purse hangers, cufflinks and more! This project sheet will walk you through the process of creating fused glass cabochons for purse hangers, bracelets and pendants with bezels.

Full fuse firing schedule for cabochons (the layers of glass will melt together and have no texture left):

 Full Fuse 
 300 dph 600º F 30 min
 300 dph 1000º F 30 min
300 dph 1100º F 10 min
50 dph 1250º F 20 min
500 dph 1480º F  10 min
AFAP 960º F 45 min
 100 dph 800º F 0 min
 200 dph 700º F 0 min
 400 dph 100º F 0 min

[Assumptions: 2 layers of standard thickness glass (3mm or 1/8") stacked to make a thickness of 6mm or 1/4"] 

The firing schedule is fairly conservative, so you shouldn't have any breakage.  However, please note that this firing schedule is just a general guideline.  It is up to the user to take into acount their glass fusing setup and design, materials used and kiln being used to yield their desired results.  

dph = degrees per hour (Fahrenheit)
AFAP = as fast as possible, represented by 9999 when programming your kiln
min = minutes
