Hope Creative's Profile

About

I enjoy working with different materials and have a background in art: drawing, painting, stained glass, paper craft, sewing, and graphic design. Hope Creative is a mix of all of these things and I am always looking for a new project.

Each piece of glass is cut by hand and smoothed with an electric grinder. I enjoy hunting for unique pieces of glass as well and try to preserve the jagged and worn quality of each piece. I also incorporate microscope glass into the pendants in order to reduce the weight of the jewelry.

All pieces are trimmed in copper foil (Tiffany method), hand soldered with a lead-free solder, and buffed with a finishing polish. A dark brown/black patina can be added as well. Most pieces come with a soldered ring at the top that allows you to easily fit to a cord or chain of your choice.
