About

Recycled and Vintage Glass Bottles are Given a New Life as Eco-Chic Jewelry & Home Decor!

Believe in fate or destiny? I do! The home we purchased in 2005 had been owned by another artist who had built a wonderful workshop on the property. The extra space allowed my production capabilities to grow with the addition of several glass kilns, plus room for all types of glass.

Thanks to the hubby for building custom cabinets for storage and for his patience as I experiemented for months trying to find that special something that would make my work unique. In 2006 I began working with traditional art glass firing techniques on recycled bottle glass. A child of the 70's and have been a "green girl" for most of my life, I was intrigued by the possibility of adding recycled glass to my jewelry line.

Again destiny prevails! Did I mention we moved to small town near a university? Yep, an unending supply of glass bottles. My husband and I approached some of the restaurants and bars in downtown about saving bottles for us. What a pleasant surprise -- most were very enthusiastic about becoming recycling partners of mine!

It has taken lots of research, lots of notes, lots of "oops" batches in the kilns. But I think we have it down pretty much now. It can be very labor intensive but I love working with the recycled and vintage bottles, taking something that was destined for a landfill and giving it a new life!

    I began designing jewelry in 2001. Never content with common materials, my 5 year journey of innovation lead to the addition of recycled glass. Home décor includes tumblers, candles & more. Since 2006, I've diverted 15,000+ bottles from landfills.
