This suncatcher is gorgeous in person--the color is vibrant and sets off well against the metal and the clear glass design. The piece arrived well-packed for safe shipping. I highly recommend this seller! Thank you!

About

Working with color and light to make you smile.

To those of you who have complimented my work and given me positive feedback -

THANK YOU! You have fed and nurtured my "Creative Spirit".

To those of you who have purchased my work or commissioned special pieces-

THANK YOU! You have enabled me to do what I love and actually make a living at it.

Everything in my shop is made by me in my studio in Greenwich, CT. If you purchase something from me you can be sure that it is handcrafted and made in the USA.

I have led many lives and had many careers. I have been a preacher, an executive assistant, a massage therapist and a bookstore owner. Through everything I have had an artistic spark, even exhibiting and selling some of my watercolors and pen & inks. But when I learned to do stained glass in 1990 I found my creative and occupational heart and soul.

At the time I owned and managed a bookstore and immediately began to sell my glasswork there. As my skills expanded and my following grew, I found that working with glass was all that I wanted to do. Glass is so beautiful and versatile. It can be fine art, but it can also be functional. It can be expansive and expensive, but it can also be small and affordable. It can be very traditional, but it also can be unconventional and abstract. And it can be any color or mix of colors that you can imagine. I love the challenge of coming up with new ideas and being original. Many things in my shop are one of a kind (OOAK), especially the abstracts, the panels and the larger boxes.

I sold my store in 1996, began to participate in regional juried fine craft shows from Maine to North Carolina, and the rest is history.

Doing stained glass has given me deep joy. I want to keep doing the best most beautiful work of which I am capable and share the work AND the joy with you.

Working with glass is a never-ending source of joy and excitement for me. The thrill of looking at a new piece in the sun for the first time is a great motivator to continually be original and creative. I have been successfully doing glasswork, making one of a kind pieces, and exhibiting at prestigious juried craft shows for many years, and Etsy has now given me the opportunity to reach a larger audience. WELCOME!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Paypal is preferred, and I will honor your purchase with prompt delivery, usually within 1-2 days unless otherwise specified, or unless custom work is involved. I work quickly though, and custom work is done as soon as possible; I will notify you of the estimated delivery date. Keep in mind, however, that if you wish to place a custom order you should do it at your earliest convenience to ensure that I will be able to produce it at the desired time, as certain times of the year (Mother's Day and Christmas) are especially busy for me.

There is currently a 6.35% sales tax on purchases made within the State of CT.
Shipping
I ship the most cost efficient way, either USPS Priority, First Class or Parcel Select. You will receive your purchases packed securely, but on the rare occasion of a breakage I will replace your item pending its return to me, though this may not be necessary in every circumstance. Large pieces will be insured, and I will handle the claims process. If this should happen please retain packing material for inspection.

If you are located outside of the United States and wish to order a listed item, please contact me prior to your purchase to determine shipping costs. Please be aware that glass is heavy, must be packed securely, and is often costly to send internationally.

If you live within my local area and wish to arrange for a pickup to save on shipping, please contact me so that I can edit the listing prior to your purchase.

Depending on your location and the size of the piece it may be necessary to adjust my shipping estimates or add insurance, in which case a separate listing will be created to reflect those adjustments, though, in many cases if the difference is minimal to my disadvantage I will absorb those differences.

If shipping has been overestimated due to a multiple-item purchase I will refund any significant overage. If you are planning to purchase multiple items and would like an estimate of shipping cost in advance please contact me. I am happy to combine shipping and strive to find the most secure but least expensive method.
Refunds and Exchanges
My greatest desire is to make you happy with your purchase and to that end will strive to rectify any problem which might arise. Returns will be accepted within one week with notification, though shipping costs and custom work are non-refundable.

Please contact me with any questions.

Thank you so much for your interest! Blessings to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders, colors, and wholesale inquiries will all be considered.
