About

Glass Art on the Bayou

Like a magpie, I’m drawn to all things that sparkle. With my background in stained glass... jewelry just happened, I’ve been hooked ever since. My preference is clean lines, lending more to a straightforward and simple design. Besides nature's offerings found on my many walks, (wildflowers, moss, dandelion seeds) I also incorporate vintage findings, real feathers, broken china and more recently magnifying glass monocles, hand fired ceramic pieces and leather. I strive to make unique and conversational jewelry.

I opened my shop on Etsy in 2010 but didnt really get serious until 2013 when I began working my jewelry full time. The "Tiffany" method of applying copper foil and solder is the process I use in making my jewelry. There is an industrial and organic sense to both the look and feel of my work. I use the highest quality metal sensitive friendly silver solder (no nickel, no lead). Brass and copper are my jewelry findings of choice and my packaging is thoughtful and secure to assure your purchases arrive safely.

Custom work is at the core. Creating unique mementos or keepsakes with a personal touch, not duplicated or manufactured. I enjoy knowing my customers and working with them to create the perfect gift for either themselves or others. This personal touch and making certain the experience is a pleasant one, this matters to me. You can find recent reviews from prior customers here: https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/BayouGlassArts/reviews

My husband, who is a professional illustrator and journal maker, shares a studio with me and we live and work deep in the Louisiana woods. Our old farm house is miles from any neighbor and is surrounded by pine trees. An ancient and alluvial bayou laps at the yard's edge. Our home and studios are in the midst of all this nature and its sweeping forms of sounds, sights and energy. I wouldn't choose to be anywhere else.

I believe in handmade. I buy handmade and vintage whenever I can and truly feel that by supporting one another we create our own micro-economy of better quality and entrepreneurship.

Frequently asked questions

How do I clean & care for my jewelry?

Treat them similar to that of sterling silver. After wearing wipe down with a soft cloth and place in a poly bag for storage. Do not wear in the shower or while swimming. Do not use harsh jewelry cleaners or dips.

Is your medium resin?

No, all of my work is glass and other substances that can withstand heat as my medium is applying soft solder (silver/copper/tin blend) that is applied with a high temp soldering iron.

Will my flower pendant turn yellow or change colors?

No, all of my flower, dandelion seeds and other terrarium pendants will not turn yellow. The items are encased in glass and not resin. The glass will not change colors.

Can I order a custom chain?

Yes, just leave desired length in the "notes to seller" at checkout.

Do you accept returns?

Once I know you are wanting to return your item I will send you the return address. Please send in condition received and once it arrives, I will refund your purchase price.

Does your metal contain nickel or lead?

No. Silver solder is eco-friendly and metal sensitive friendly.

Custom and personalized orders

Please send me a message and I will be happy to work with you on custom orders or wholesale orders.

Gift wrapping and packaging
