(I put Seattle as my location because it is the closest recognizable large city).

With my skill at stained glass techniques and my love of vintage images, I introduced the storybook illustration night lights at a few local craft fairs. Bingo! I found out that others have special memories to vintage images too! This has lead me to be the "Night Light Queen" in my town.

The studio is off the house and there is where the magic happens. All my nightlights and pendants are done by ME in my studio. If you would like to see my other work, go to www.swanson-glass.com. If you are interested in a specific design, I can recreate it for you and offer it on ETSY. If you would like to purchase something from me but are having problems becoming a member of ETSY, please contact me directly at sharon [!at] swanson-glass.com and I would be happy to create work for you.

I have 2 Etsy store! My other one sells marble jewelry: http://www.etsy.com/shop/SwansonGlass
