Announcement   Welcome! My name is Angela Smith and I have been a stained glass artist for over 15 years.

African Sand Stained Glass was started in 2005 after my job relocated to another state. It was then that I decided to work full time on my God given talent to see where it would take me. Its been a fun and interesting ride.

The pieces I create are not only decorative but some are also functional.

Custom orders are always welcome and a payment plan is available for larger pieces. Please contact me if this service is needed.

All of my work is signed (except jewelry and Car Angels) and guaranteed to be free of scratches, chips or cracks. A care card with a short bio is also included. All items are made in a smoke free environment. International shipping is offered.

Any earrings can be converted to clips for those without pierced ears. They can be found in the Chains, Ear Wires and Clips section of my shop.

About

A Little About Me

I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. My journey as an artist began at a very early age when my Mother showed my sister and I how to dig clay out of a hill on our Grand parent's farm, mold it and bake it in the sun. Little did we know that child's play would turn into a lifetime of creativity.

My entrepreneur/art journey began when I needed money to finance the Barbie dolls and their clothes. I made and sold potholders that I made on my loom, door to door, which was profitable for me at that time.

I went to college for photography and art where I discovered a level of creativity I didn't know I had, working in every medium. There was never a time when I wasn't creating something.

Fast forward to 2005. The company I worked for as a production manager relocated to another state. I didn't and decided to devote all of my energy into fully developing my stained glass skills. That turned out to be one of the best decisions ever. I've watched my business go from a few sales here and there to getting commissioned work on a regular basis, having corporate clients and shipping worldwide.

Please contact me if you need something special. I create all of my own stained glass designs and custom work is always welcome.
