Announcement   Rhode Island School of Design Graduate, Member of the Etsy Glass Guild, the Media Arts Council, and the Main Line Art Center. Over the years my work has appeared in The Limited, Women's Wear Daily, April Cornell, as well as having had my ideas and designs published and produced.

As an artist, I have spent my life creating unique art in a variety of mediums. Some artistic inspirations beg to be expressed in oil and canvas, others in glass, paper, clay, or fiber.
I love combining my skills and different mediums to create unique pieces of art. A good week is one where I have used my kiln, soldering iron, sewing machine, crochet hooks, and more!

Glass is a fabulous medium to work with. The colors are rich and amazing, with endless ways to express artistic inspiration. Beautiful transparent colors, sumptuous opaque colors, breath-taking dichroic finishes, and a myriad of techniques allow me to create glass artwork that I hope will bring you as much joy to wear as I feel when making each piece.

Each unique piece of art is entirely made by hand in my studio. The item shown in the listing photograph is the actual piece you will receive. I ship quickly (usually the next business day), via USPS First Class Mail and want to be sure that you're absolutely thrilled with your purchase when you receive it.

I hope that you find something here today that makes you smile.
Have a great day!

I can not say enough wonderful things about Brenda and her beautiful work! This was a special request order, inspired by a previous ocean glass cuff bracelet that I had seen in her sold items section. I fell in love with the photos and asked if she could make something like it again for me. She did the work faster than I hoped for and sent several photos of the glass she planned to use and the piece in its early stages before firing for my approval. She incorporated the elements I requested, but made it her own creation, and it came out absolutely beautiful! Multi layers of gorgeous, watery colors with fishes, shells, jelly fish, sea weeds, mica and glowing dichroic glass. Every angle is packed with color and teaming with interesting bits of sea life! Like a paperweight you can comfortably wear! The fit is perfect! So pleased!

This is so perfect! I loved Brenda's little pate de verre critters and loved the little love bird pendant I previously purchased, so I asked her if she would immortalized my little rescued house sparrow in a barrette and I am so happy with the results! She has used so many layers of finely shaded mixed colors of glass and my little bird is so well sculpted! I love the leafy, floral branch and the colors are all lovely! It is light and very comfortable to wear and I will enjoy it for many years! Communication is friendly and easy and Brenda always kept me up to speed on what she was doing, sending photos of the glass she would use for my approval and also a photo of her design drawing and finished work to approve before listing. The final result was so satisfying! I'm so glad I asked her if she could do this for me! Perfect!
