Tucked away in our quiet country home our life here flows with the seasons.
SPRING brings forth new growth all around us, we prepare the earth for planting, spring peepers sing their songs, the koi in my water garden awaken from their long slumber.
SUMMER brings our woods and gardens that surround us every shade of green, flowers bursting their colors everywhere, the warm and soothing summer sun gives us energy and life's sustenance, relaxing in my garden teahouse with sun tea, berry picking, moon and star gazing, playing with my Granddaughter in our fairy garden, summer breezes and ending the day with a bit of guitar around the campfire and lulled to sleep by the crickets songs.

FALL in our home is the season of the Gathering. Harvesting our crops, game and seeds, orchard picking, gathering in the kitchen and pantry canning, baking and freezing, prepare the earth for it's long winter slumber, a time to collect my wind chimes and garden art and bring them to safety, awaiting the glorious arrival of the Harvest and Hunters' moons, as they greet me and envelop the night sky. Autumn to me is a Season of Celebration, as we gather together at tables with family and friends. Grateful and Thankful for them and for natures bounty.
WINTER brings cozy quiet time around the fireplace, a hot cup of tea, a good book, warm stews and soups, organizing my studio, writing in my journal of inspirations for the coming of the next Spring in our quiet country home, preparing to start the circle of life yet again.

"Winter is an etching, Spring a watercolor, Summer an oil painting and Autumn a mosaic of them all."......Stanley Horowitz

Welcome to my Shop ~ Jewels In The Garden
~ I create one of a kind stained glass art ~ Inspired by Nature ~
Bringing you reflections of color, movement & soothing sounds to your home & garden
All of my glass art is individually designed & handcrafted by myself. Each piece is totally unique and one of a kind.
I am a self taught artist and have been enjoying and creating stained glass, mosaic designs, paintings, murals and my gardens for over 25 years now.
I have a great passion for glass, for my gardens and the great outdoors, so I combined them to create my glass art for your home & garden, inspired by nature
A garden should be filled with not only plants & love, but little surprises throughout it. Something to catch your eye & drag you in to sit awhile to stop and smell the roses.
My heart and soul goes into all of my art.
Always on the look out for vintage glass, beads, or objects to reuse. I love to upcycle pieces into my art.
Taking nothing and turning it into something!

Most of my inspirations come from my favorite place to be in this world, my gardens. Nature always sings to me.
My name Jewels In The Garden comes from my passion for my Gardens & for my Husband who calls me Jewel.

Always take care with the placement of glass art outdoors.
Make sure it is positioned in a sheltered cove or low to the ground sheltered next to a bush, keeping it safe from harmful winds and harsh elements.
Please bring inside for enjoyment when the weather turns.
