Very cute, thank you so much!!
I love to design and make stained glass. I love the process. I love the challenge.
I am not your typical stained glass artist. I am not sure if such a thing even exists, but if it did, I would not fit the description. I did not go to art school, I did not grow up in a family of artists, I actually have not taken any stained glass classes ever.
Growing up in a country far-far away I knew I would not become an artist. I have to thank my parents for exposing me to art and art history from a very early age. My father has taught me a lot, from drawing to basic carpentry skills. My mom taught me how to sew, my aunt - how to knit. However, it was always implied that I would follow in my parents' footsteps and become an engineer. And I did not mind that at all - I loved math.
Twenty years later, already in the USA and married, I was working hard on advancing my IT career. I still enjoyed crafting now and then, but could not settle on a medium. One day on a whim I bought a small crate with stained glass at a yard sale. At home I went through it and, in addition to glass, found a book and a few tools. I began to flip through the book and realized that I was in possession of a basic kit, so I actually could follow the instructions. That evening I cut my first pieces of glass, wrapped them in foil and soldered them together. Suddenly I made my first stained glass panel and it came naturally to me.
Glass was the medium I was looking for and I fell in love with it instantly. Perpetually cut and punctured fingers and broken nails could not stop me. Over the next ten years I have learned a lot and eventually started to design my own panels. With practice came an understanding of glass as a medium, and I learned to make less cuts and achieve the effect I desired with cleaner, simpler lines. Now the process of designing and then making a piece gives me a zen-like feeling. With my career and my kids' full schedules I run a crazy race every day, and my workroom is where I rest.
When I found Etsy, it turned out to be the perfect platform for me, because it allowed me to keep my own pace, to make what I was inspired to make, and to offer my ideas to the world. I joined Etsy in December of 2009 and it has been a great experience.
I am a mom, a wife, and a software engineer. And as if this is not enough, I really-really-REALLY enjoy designing and making stained glass.

Returns and exchange details
CUSTOM ORDERS ARE NOT RETURNABLE.
If the item arrived to you safely but you would like to return it because you do not like it or have changed your mind, please notify me within 72 hours of receipt. I will refund your purchase price (shipping charge excluded) once the item arrives back to me safely and intact. You will be responsible for shipping it back to me and insuring it.
If I do not hear from you within 72 hours after you receive (sign for) the item the sale is assumed to be final.
I double-box all my larger items, which makes the size of the package significantly larger than the size of the item - better safe than sorry. Insurance is included in the shipping charge and your item will be insured for the price you are paying for it. I am not responsible for lost or stolen items, so for larger and more expensive items I will require signature confirmation.
Outside of the USA - Please note that I am NOT RESPONSIBLE for covering or notifying you about any fees, taxes or customs duties imposed by your country.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most commissions are welcome. I do not do repairs. Pricing for custom orders depends on complexity and size.

I design my patterns myself, so all designs are copyright Alla Sharkova unless otherwise stated. Please do not copy or reproduce my designs without my permission.
