About

Kiss My Glass in 5 Minutes or Less...

Hi all! Thank you so much for taking an interest in my shop!

This super exciting journey began a few years ago with a Christmas present from my awesome sister, Mary. She knew how much I wanted to melt glass, and she got me started with my very first torch (my trusty Hot Head), glass rods and all the tools needed to get started. The only thing I didn't have was knowledge of actually HOW to melt glass. No worries- my equally awesome Dad taught me the how-to. :)

I don't think I came inside from my newly acquired "garage-shop" for at least two weeks. Seriously. I couldn't get enough. Every time I would mess up a technique or design, I just had to get it right. In the lampworking community, this is not at all unusual behavior. :)

Followed were books. Numerous books. Every book I could get my paws on. I learned this ancient art of melting glass rods in the flame of a torch to create wearable pieces of art through a lot of trial and error, books, countless hours at the torch, books, experiementing, more books, and recently, -ah, the wonders of modern technology- the Internet.

Bing-Bang-Boom
Here we are now- I have my own little piece of the World Wide Web to show and sell my creations. How exciting is that?! I have been selling for quite a while now, but have been doing it the "old-fashioned" way... In person. At markets, stores, parties, you name it. :).

So while it certainly appears that I am new to this, please know that I have very satisfied and loyal (and awesomely creative) customers throughout Illinois that have been on this adventure with me for several years now. I love my girls ♥

So, sit back, have a look around, and if you see something that sparks your creative interest, by all means, get it! :) Then, after you've created your masterpiece, shoot me a message with pictures! With your permission, I would love to post them on my website, http://amandatoliver.com/

Thank you again, for your interest!
Amanda
