About me... (continued).
As a child, I spent a great deal of time in my father’s workshop. He owned an interior decorating store, but had a hobby creating unique items out of Plexiglas (a clear acrylic glass). His hobby later became and still is his fulltime profession.

So the passion for working with glass was instilled in me at a young age, I just felt it needed color! I was trained and aprenticed in the Art of Stained Glass in Memphis, Tennessee. Afterwards, my husband and I had the opportunity to move to the French Alps, where I had a workshop (Atelier) and the opportunity to teach this art.

Now that we have moved back to America, I am happy to be using my talent to create beautiful gifts, holiday, office and home decor items. I hope you see something you like, whether for you or for a friend.

Please continue to enjoy browsing through my store, for it truly is ....... More Than Colors.

The first window I ever made, I stood up with the light shining through it and begged God to teach me what He wanted me to see through it! I waited .... and then it came. Each piece was carefully cut, ground and fashioned in it's proper place. Some light and some very dark. While I had worked on it, it lay flat, the colors were very dull and hardly noticable.....BUT when it was finished and I held it up in the light....it was breathtaking! The dark pieces(our trials) were what brought so much beauty and all the pieces were necessary to make something so beautiful. And suddenly an overwhelming sense of pride came over me that I had made "this work of art". Then God whispered that someday when I am finished and He holds me up and the light of Christ shines through.....God will say "I MADE YOU!"

STAINED GLASS CARE:

If you are unfamiliar with stained glass products and their care, please keep in mind that glass is breakable and the more intricate designs can be delicate, so always remember handle with care.

It is important to note that glass will show fingerprints and dust. While Glass is resistant to most chemicals, you should not clean your pieces with window cleaners, alcohol, bleach, acetone, benzene, or scouring compounds. Instead, please wash with a mild dish soap (not with lemon)and plenty of lukewarm water. Dry with a soft cloth (or microfiber cloth) to prevent streaking. Should the lead become tarnished looking over time, a fine steel wool pad may be used to polish out the oxidation, bringing back that silvery shine."

Bonjour! Je m’appelle Michelle. Merci d’avoir fait le tour de mon magasin virtuel. Tous mes articles sont fabriqués à la main : coupés, meulés, mis en plomb ou ruban de cuivre, et soudés par moi personnellement. J’espère que vous avez trouvé quelque chose qui vous plaît, et, également, je vous invite à revenir visiter ce site bientôt pour voir mes derniers ouvrages !

Juste un peu à propos de moi. Je suis une épouse comblée et une maman de deux enfants. J’ai passé huit ans en Europe, en profitant pour voir autant de cathédrales et vitraux que possible ! Je parle français et j’aime la cuisine française, surtout les crêpes, sans oublier un bon café fort.

Dans ma jeunesse, j’ai passé beaucoup de temps dans l’atelier de mon papa qui était propriétaire d’un magasin de décoration d’intérieurs. Il fabriquait des bibelots en Plexiglas comme passe-temps ; et plus tard il vendrait sa boutique et son hobby remplacerait sa profession.

Ainsi la passion de travailler le verre m’a été inculqué tôt dans la vie, mais il me fallait un peu plus de couleur. Par conséquent, j’ai reçu une formation d’artisan en vitraux à Memphis, TN aux États-Unis. Peu après, mon mari et moi ont déménagé aux Alpes en France où j’ai eu l’occasion de faire mon propre atelier et apprendre mon métier aux autres.

À notre retour en Amérique, j’ai commencé à rechercher un moyen pour utiliser mon don. Alors me voici sur Esty. À bientôt…Michelle
