About

I walked into a glass shop in Berkeley California and my life changed forever

My husband and I were walking around the shops in Berkeley and saw a sign for a fused glass class over the weekend. We took that class together and had so much fun that I started fusing glass the next week. He found an old industrial kiln for me that held a 4" X 8" kiln shelf and I was fusing little experiments every day. I took over the dining room and soon I had a slightly larger kiln and could fuse plates. I wore a timer around my neck so that I would remember to change the settings on the kiln since there weren't many computer controllers then. I made plates and more plates and then sculptures. We did shows and he hauled all those heavy plates and sculptures to those shows for a few years. Then we found a gallery in the Nordstrom Center in San Francisco. They sold lots of my glass for the next 5 years. Then they closed! I was broken hearted.
Eventually I thought about trying to make jewelry. Jewelry has been so freeing and so much fun. No heavy boxes to haul to shows. I don't have to fire my kiln for 6-8 hours like I did when I made sculptures.

Greetings, All jewelry is hand fabricated in my studio behind my home. I have been making jewelry for over 15 years and enjoy creating new and interesting pieces for you to enjoy. I started in Dichroic Glass and have found that sterling silver is a great material to enhance the glass. Niobium is also one of my passions since I just love color. All colors. All jewelry for sale is already made and ready to ship. I try to ship the day after payment is made.
