Glass Art and Jewelry "Guaranteed to be Different"

Dayton, Ohio · 30 Sales

Announcement   Picking colors, melting the glass and pulling the rod, is how I start making these earrings. After I make the rod I go to my torch to melt the glass and let gravity shape the drop. I pair the drops that look alike and they become the base for my timeless earrings. I grind the tips of the drops and glue the sterling silver findings to them. The result is a one of a kind glass and sterling silver pair of earrings.
If there is a color you want, or, if you want more than one of the same color/rod just let me know. Ill be happy to work with you.

About

Glass is my passion.

I’ve been working with glass for over 20 years. I do not limit myself to one way of working with glass. I use it in jewelry, I blow glass, I fuse glass, I cast glass and I make 2D wall hangings. In the wall hangings I either use fused glass and oil paints or I cut glass to make a mosaics.

I like to keep my jewelry simple and elegant. The drops are shaped through gravity and heat. I can include color where I want but in the end it is the force of nature that gives the glass the shape. For the last couple of years I have only used sterling silver to finish the jewelry. The glass and silver are materials that are timeless.
