I bought these as a gift for someone. Mara was so easy to work with even enclosing a note to the recipient for me!
I love these earrings. They are very unusual and are as described.
I love this piece. As described. I plan to use with a different chain.
A little bit about me...
I have been creating jewelry and glass art for about 9 years. A friend of mine had a fleeting interest in beading and I went along for the ride. Eventually, she lost interest but I just couldn't stop. Soon, I had the urge to create my own beads and pendants so I started Lampworking (melting glass in a torch) and then Glass Fusing (heating glass in a kiln). I have always had an affinity for glass so it made sense to work with this medium. Oh, and if you are wondering why I named my shop, Dragonfly Adornments; I really like dragonflies.
I started consigning my jewelry at a local gift shop in Minnesota. I have been selling my designs there for 7 years and have some wonderful and loyal customers. I also enjoy displaying and selling my creations at craft shows, events and in-home shopping. I am a member of HandmadeMN and Etsy street team where I write the HandmadeMN weekly giveaway and the Fun Friday Finds.
The Fused Glass Process
Fused glass is created by cutting and layering glass and fusing it in a kiln at a range of 1,000 °F-1,500 °F. The fusing process takes about 18 hours from the time it's placed in the kiln to the time it can be removed.
If I am going to to fused an image onto the glass, I have to print it onto special fusing paper with a specific type of printer. I fuse it up to about 1200 °F. The ink from the printer burns off and iron oxide is what is left creating the sepia image. This process takes nearly 12 hours!
Fused Glass Keepsakes
I enjoy creating personalized fused glass keepsakes. I have fused actual hand prints, handwriting, photographs, artwork, images and phrases onto pendants, suncatchers, key chains and nightlights. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like me to create something special for you!
I am very interested in the healing powers of natural stones. I like to provide my customers with the healing properties and the meaning of the gemstones in their jewelry. I especially love creating meaningful jewelry for customers and finding stones that can symbolize something very personal. I believe that the stones can help you feel better when you wear them. It does not matter if you believe in the metaphysical, if you feel great wearing a lovely piece of jewelry, then that is what matters. I reference The Crystal Healer by Philip Permutt for my information.

Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I create all my adornments in my home-based studio in Minnesota. I grew up in an artistic and creative family on the shores of Lake Superior in Upper Michigan and my love of nature is reflected in my jewelry and fused glass designs.
I make each piece individually. The items you see in the photographs are the actual pieces for sale and are one of a kind.
-If you fall in love with an item that has been sold I can attempt to recreate it but cannot guarantee that it will be identical.
-You'll want to check back often because even I never know what style or color combination I'll be making next.
Thanks for stopping!
