Think. Create. Inspire.

Growing up my mom was always working with stained glass. Whether it was for stained glass candles or small decorative pieces, we always had her materials lying around. I was fascinated with the colors, the movement of the glass, and the uniqueness of each piece. When my mom's friend had the idea for a stained glass windchime, I ran with it.

I visit with local stained glass artisans and reuse the scraps that they would not otherwise be able to use and enjoy my connection with those around me.

During my educational pursuit of becoming a teacher I was fortunate enough to travel the world and to experience cultures that felt more like communities rather than strangers. The reason that I am so passionate about teaching is that I'm able to be a part of a young person's story. Art also helps me connect in this way with people and is why I continue creating the works that I do.

I like to think my windchimes are my thought process of this growth in myself as a person, of experiencing new world developments, of culture's visual appearance. My work is a shared experience of life, the colors we associate with feelings, with places, and with sounds.

My name is Erin McDonald, I am 26 and am a masters student of African Art History at the University of Kentucky. My undergraduate degrees are in History and Art History from the University of Northern Colorado. I also have a license in Secondary Education and was fortunate enough to spend last year in a High School teaching kids about how to succeed in school and in their futures.

I love working with stained glass that I get from various sources. Creating something from scratch to become unique is.. something else. Something I'd never sell or give away for anything. I love having a free range of ideas, no restrictions or people telling you "can't". I see the world in color and I adore it.

:WHOLESALE: ****We are unable to do wholesale at this time. Thank you.****
Currently my shop runs at 60% wholesale excluding the itty chimes which would be more along the lines of 75% off (ex: so $11 instead of $15, or $7 instead of $10). If that seems like a possible deal, let me know and I can begin setting away chimes for you. I love having my chimes in different places so if you have any concerns or questions please let me know and I can see what I can do for you :).

We are unable to do consignment at this time. Thank you.

I will always give feedback to a customer for fast payment and friendly comments. I treasure your kind words and comments and really will try to make you extra happy if you come back! :) Promise!
Feedback lets me know as a seller that you have received your item and are satisfied with it.
