Daria's Profile

About

A Little About Me:

My name is Daria and I create one-of-a-kind glass gifts in my home-based studio/workshop in beautiful West Michigan. I am a self representing artist (SRA). My beads and rings are all handformed with glass rods in the fire of a torch and properly annealed in a kiln for maximum strength and durability. All of the glasses I use come from the USA, Italy or Germany. I've been working with different forms of glass (fusing, lampwork, casting, stained glass) for more than twelve years and get inspiration from nature, music, people and daydreaming.

The rings, beads and pendants I make are all one-of-a-kind which means that you will be the only person in the world wearing one.

Not sure about your US ring size? A very handy size and conversion chart can be found…

Or you can email me with your finger measurement in millimeters, or the interior diameter of a ring that fits, and I can figure it out for you.

I really love what I do. Everything that I make is like a little piece of me. I'm very particular about packaging my items carefully so they won't suffer any damage while in transit to you. If you have any special requests for shipping, overnight shipping, insurance, etc., please contact me through the link in my shop for information. -Or contact me for any reason, I love to hear from people. :)

PAYMENT:
I'm able to accept payment through PayPal, Google Checkout or RME (Revolution Money Exchange). Money orders and personal checks are also accepted.

P.S. I am by no means a professional photographer, (but I'm still working on it)! Generally all glass items on the web are MUCH richer in real life! My camera happens to have a problem capturing the depth of reds. All rings are cleaned, smooth and comfortable! Also, they are hypoallergenic and perfect for anyone with metal sensitivities.

When I'm not cutting, fusing and torching glass, I enjoy homeschooling and playing with my two wonderful kids, working in my garden, reading philosophy and instructional books, or riding my bike to the library. Thank you very much for your interest and best wishes to you.

"Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake." - Henry David Thoreau

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." - Thomas E. Lawrence

"I never ask a man what his business is, for it never interests me. What I ask him about are his thoughts and dreams." - H. P. Lovecraft

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt

"Dreams are free, so free your dreams." - Astrid Alauda

"Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!" - Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. - Edgar Allan Poe
