Announcement   I am a designer of unique, one of a kind jewelry creations. Each piece I feel is a work of art. Glass is my passion! I am a self-taught artist, whose knowledge and experience have grown through trial and error. I never really plan what a piece will look like. I more or less, design with my feelings and emotions and it just basically starts to build from there. A piece of jewelry for me, can literally take hours or days to perfect.

I am like a child in a candy store when it comes to glass. I want it all!! The colors are like rainbows just after a rain. So come on into my garden! Take some time during your busy day to look around and admire the beauty that each piece holds and it's uniqueness.

If there is something you adore, please let me know. I hope you can see the love and inspiration that each piece was created with.

Each piece is handmade by me and approved by my assistant, Cookie. I do it for the love of creating! Let me create something special for you!

If you are purchasing a gift for someone, I can ship it directly to them and enclose a gift card with your sentiments, just let me know at check-out.

About

An Artist with a Passion for Glass!

I am a self-taught artist! I think I have always been an artist of some sort since I was very little. Creating was part of me and made me feel like shouting out, I MADE THIS! Creating makes my heart happy and keeps the young child within me alive.

Creating jewelry all started in a round about way, when I signed up for a stained glass class. It was a little store, on a side street with 3 owners. One was a chocolate-aholic, the other was a good teacher, but somewhat grumpy and fairly odd, the other was the sister, that kept them both in-line. I fit in perfectly!!! One of the sisters said she had just taken a lampworking glass and loved it. I said.... hmm, I need to take a look at that also. I didn't take a glass, but went to the library and took out every book I could on fused glass and bead making. I was hooked! I discovered how to melt glass!!!! I love doing stained glass and still do on occasion, but my real passion is melting glass with heat and fire!

It's like Christmas morning at times! Once a piece goes into the kiln, I can't wait for the next morning when I can lift that lid, and see what has transpired through the night. The colors can change dramatically when under fire, and do not always come out the same color they went in.

If I should ever loose that excitement when a piece is created, I know it is time to move on to something else. I don't foresee that happening for a very long time, if ever!

Each piece is handmade by me and approved by my assistant, Cookie. There are numerous hours invested in just one piece! I do it for the love of creating! Let me create something special for you!

I hope you come in and browse the shop, and it there is something you adore, please let me know. I hope you can see the love and inspiration that each piece was created with..

Additional policies and FAQs
Glass may have some irregularities and bubbles, which usually adds character to the piece. The bubbles are not an imperfection which makes the piece unstable. I have photographed each piece for as true a representation as possible. However, often the color and intensity of the color are not truly captured.
