“Can you make me a portrait of my mother/father/brother/girlfriend riding a donkey/golf cart/catfish/weiner-mobile eating a bowl of cherries with a bird on their shoulder? “
“Yes, all challenges, big or small, are warmly welcomed. I love to tell a good story.”
“May I request an item be in a different color, without a change in price?”
“Yes in most cases, Opaque Purple, depending on quantity would be the rare exception.”
“Can you make an item shorter, smaller?”
“Yes, rarely a problem, however, we do not glue glass to create stud earrings.”
“ I do not like necklaces tight about my neck? Can you make a piece longer?”
“Yes, we can determine the length that is right for you and string it accordingly.”

Alterations and Repairs
We do not glue or ”fix” our glass, however, we can replace components. Write me to discuss the best repair scenario for your damaged piece.
Caring For Your Handmade Glass
Glass is an extraordinary material, and unfortunately can break. Wear your lampworked jewelry with caution around drinking fountains. Remove over a dresser verses the hard counters found in bathrooms and kitchens. Travel with your jewelery in a hard well cushioned case. In case a repair is needed, just contact us!
