Announcement    I design & create unique glass artwork, night lights & jewelry that make women feel confident & their homes... beautiful. If you want to accentuate your home or body with handcrafted accessories & at the same time support locally made small businesses you've come to the right place.

It's always been important to me that I contribute to the homegrown marketplace & fully support the locally sourced, locally crafted movements. The shop small philosophy isn't just mumbo jumbo- it actually means something. It means we help each other in our small way to succeed & have meaningful lives in our community helping it thrive over the years.

My glass designs are timeless expressions of things that make us happy & are the result of 16 years experience in fine quality hand-craftsmanship. I am solely responsible for all design concepts to completed artwork.

I offer great gifts for anyone who appreciates a miniature handmade work of art. I work in small batches so while some of the night lights are similar no 2 are ever the same. The subdued lighting creates a relaxed vibe & warm ambiance when turned on at night or even during the day.

What we wear should be comfortable & easy just like a great relationship. My jewelry designs = simple elegance often with an edgy slant. Because of the delicate scale I take precise care to ensure a perfect balance between comfort & style. This year marks a new direction for my jewelry designs which are boldly feminine & daring.

Glass stones are paired with unique high quality metals including sterling silver & 14K rose/yellow gold filled components. These precious metals do not contain nickel which is ideal for women who are sensitive to lower quality/plated metals. Sterling is neutral in color which makes it an ideal complement to the intense colors of the glass. The warmer toned 14K metals allow me to create earthy, feminine pieces.

In the studio I work diligently with clear intention & at times in a faster, more abstract & free-formed way much like cooking, a dash of this... a dash of that. The end results are more organic & it is a freeing process. I handle every piece from scratch to completion.

This year I plan to delve into the fine art of enameling where powdered glass & cloisonne wire are melted onto fine silver. The fruits of this art form are rare because of the challenging, time consuming process which requires ultra attention to detail and a very steady hand.

A few words about me

My Mission
I pursue an innate passion to design & create daily. I am entirely responsible for design concept to completed artwork. I connect with my supporters & appreciators at local Bay Area Art & Wine Festivals. It is in these connections that I am continually inspired to make more & more beautiful or interesting work.

My Statement
I believe we all need to be surrounded by positive energy so our life-force may thrive. It is my intention to create beautiful works of art that are also functional yet simple relevance is fine too. Working with glass is the way I stay centered & balanced in beauty & it makes me happy to know I might impact others in an uplifting way.

My Work
I understand that refined hand craftsmanship & quality original designs are critical for a successful work of art. My main goal first & foremost is to create beautiful, accessible art. I am proud to say I support myself 100% on my art.

I make unique glass nightlights, fine art & jewelry that makes women feel confident & their homes...beautiful. My pieces are colorful & textural. The jewelry is created with intensely saturated metallic dichroic glass. I take precise care to ensure a perfect balance between comfort & style.

Design Integrity
Because of my love of color & design it was a natural flow to choose to work with glass. I have a background in interior design, oil painting & watercolors, stained glass windows & quilt-making. I use my intuition to add color as necessary & emphasize texture & strong lines to create positive & negative spaces in my work. It's important for me to express a harmonious flow of energy & I hope you enjoy the end results.

My Past
I learned about creativity from my mom & dove into projects at an early age. I continued my adult education in religion & the arts.

16 years ago I became a member of the San Francisco Street Artist Program. What magical experiences I had while working in the shadows of palm trees & downtown hi-rises. Bay Area Art & Wine Festivals are now my main venues. My events are listed on www.danaboyko.com. Please stop by when you are in the area... & thank you for visiting my Etsy shop!

The Process
This collection consists of multiple layers of cut glass, powdered glass enamel & compatible metals like fine silver, 14K gold foil & leaf, mica, copper & brass. After I establish a design I select the best colors & cut the elements out of sheet glass, assemble the piece, fire it in my kiln & add painted surface detailing to bring out the handmade quality of my work. Next I assemble the finished piece for you to enjoy!
