Home Fusion travels to clients' homes toting an assortment of materials and apparatuses for a three-hour glass-jewelry-making class, enabling attendants to craft their own, sand-based bobbles. Gather three friends, family members, or identical clones, and learn the art of glass fusing alongside Home Fusions' experienced artisan. Accessorizers manufacture an original piece from a selection of glasses, utilizing a slew of specialized equipment, including glasscutters and breakers. Once the hand-made ornaments are assembled, the Fusion host cements the shape and style of the collection in a portable kiln, before finishing them in-studio to ensure each piece properly cools and refrains from roughhousing with careless stone pendants. All participants receive their hand-crafted trinkets the following day.
