He reminds me to slow down and enjoy the simpler things in life but also to challenge myself without hiding behind the fear of failure. He knows no judgements or labels, just sees things for what they really are.

For nearly 8 years, I have been fusing glass as well as creating hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Over two years ago, we made the leap as a family & as a small business & relocated to sunny Los Angeles!

Chasing a dream & that paper, we made the life-changing decision to relocate & decided that it was Cali or bust!!! We face the daily challenges of life as a small business in SoCal, filled with inspiration & overflowing with creativity! The warm sun & ocean air do wonders for the soul!!

They say life is not just about the destination, it's more about the trip itself. And, so far for us, IT'S BEEN A LONG, STRANGE and wonderful TRIP & I wouldn't change any of it for the world!! I can't wait to see where life takes us...

Always BE GRATEFUL!!!
