Welcome to Glass Realm Designs!  Within this website, you'll discover my hand soldered wedding bouquet keepsakes, vintage inspired jewelry, and my space for personal creativity!

As goes the story for many of us, I have been creating art in one form or another since childhood.  When my sister and I were little girls, we spent hours watching our mother put together little masterpieces out of what seemed like thin air.  Mom could combine some carefully chosen wool felt, a handful of sequins, a few dashes of glitter, and magic was sure to happen.  My mother's creativity and sharing that gift with me has given me some of my fondest memories.

My sister and I followed in mom's footsteps by trying our hand at our own projects, letting our own personal forms of artistic motivation guide us as we went.  We started our own business in 1999 and along with…

Welcome to Glass Realm Designs!  Within this website, you'll discover my hand soldered wedding bouquet keepsakes, vintage inspired jewelry, and my space for personal creativity!

As goes the story for many of us, I have been creating art in one form or another since childhood.  When my sister and I were little girls, we spent hours watching our mother put together little masterpieces out of what seemed like thin air.  Mom could combine some carefully chosen wool felt, a handful of sequins, a few dashes of glitter, and magic was sure to happen.  My mother's creativity and sharing that gift with me has given me some of my fondest memories.

My sister and I followed in mom's footsteps by trying our hand at our own projects, letting our own personal forms of artistic motivation guide us as we went.  We started our own business in 1999 and along with our mother, began selling our handmade dried floral topiaries and a plethora of seasonal decor at local art and gift shows in the Seattle, Washington area.  Eventually, we moved in different creative directions but have remained a source of inspiration, encouragement and fresh opinions for one another.

As I continued to follow my own artistic compass, I was lead back to my lifelong love of jewelry and began taking courses where I learned the art of creating hand soldered jewelry. I fell in love with the process! It allows me to take photos and graphic design images and fuse them between small sections of glass to then create pendants and charms like no other.

And so, from my studio here on lovely Whidbey Island, Washington, I have been busy working on Glass Realm Designs.

I combine classic designs and vintage inspired altered or graphic art with lead-free, high sheen silver solder, beautiful chains, ribbon, charms, crystals, pearls, and of course, glass.  The end result is always unique, inventive, and beautifully unexpected. My goal is to create timeless pieces that will remain in your personal jewelry collection for years to come.

Love God, love your family, love your friends, and love what you do.  Be thankful for what you have and what your body will let you do every day, no matter how small it seems to be.  Everything else will fall into place.  I hope you will love wearing my pieces as much as I have loved creating them!  Thank you so much for visiting Glass Realm and I hope you come back often!
