Tiny neighborhood spring beauties

While walking through my neighborhood, I noticed these tiny (about 1/2 inch long) winged elm seeds. I decided to make them in glass. It was a labor of love as each little wisp of white was a drawn out stringer cut and put in place. A few jumped on the first fuse and had to be ground off, and the piece refused a few times.
