Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    As long as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to animals. It didn’t matter if it was alive, stuffed, real or imagined. I think it’s their faces. So innocent to the ways of the human world. As a kid I would draw this little creature I called Ziggy. Basically because I couldn’t draw worth a crap I made him odd shaped with big “googly” eyes.

Now, a few decades later I still cannot draw worth a crap. Shocker-I am still drawn to making oddly shaped creatures with “googly” eyes. (What can I say?) They always make me smile. But now they have taken up a 3D form and are made out of glass.

I hope they make you smile as well.

If you’ve read this far (Thanks) Please visit www.Beadsofcourage.org . On the days that I want to play at the torch but don’t have a plan, I make beads for the Beads of Courage kids. And yes, they ALWAYS have googly eyes. :-)

If you must know the details…I began fusing glass in 2001 to make jewelry. Let me tell you something. The first time you melt glass, you’re hooked on an expensive and mesmerizing journey!! In 2007 I took a class in Lampworking, (most folks think of as glass blowing, but it’s a smaller scale) to learn how to make 3 dimensional critters. I started by learning how to make beads but has blossomed from there. Oh, and yes, I can make “pretty things" too.

Hi there!

I have been creating fused glass artwork, lampwork glass beads, glass cabochons, and jewelry for about 10 years now. I have a passion for the torch, my kilns, glass, and all things sparkly.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
On any of my handmade designs (which is pretty much all I list here) I offer a satisfaction guarantee. I will refund your money once the item has been returned and received by me. I don't normally refund shipping, but I'm not unreasonable.
Payment
I accept payments via paypal (you can use major credit cards if you don't have a paypal account), and now via DIRECT CHECKOUT through Etsy.

If you would rather mail a check we can do that, it just delays shipping as I don't ship until the check is cleared. (about 8 business days according to my bank.)
Shipping
I normally ship Postal Service. If you have a preference for a different method, I can accommodate. (It normally costs more to ship UPS or Fedex for the smaller items) I try to ship by the next business day, but it could take me up to 3.
