This jewelry set is absolutely gorgeous! The fire in the gold dichro glass is so brilliant and bold! I am in love <3 The jewelry came quickly and packaged safely (it is glass, after all). I couldn't be happier with my purchase :) The price was a steal for the set!

About

I am a stained glass sculpture artist. I also create fused glass jewelry and art dresses inspired by my stained glass work.

Welcome to Keiks Designs!
I'm a sculpture artist who works primarily with stained glass, mirrors and lights to create illusionary spaces for the viewer to reflect and explore within. I also create fused glass jewelry and art dresses inspired by my sculptures. I'm currently living in Minneapolis, MN where I share an artist loft with a friend.

Since childhood I knew I wanted to be an artist. It was just a matter of what kind of artist. A strong aspect of my work, that has roots in my youthful curiosity, is my use of mirror. As a child I would walk around my house with a mirror under my nose which created the illusion that I was walking on the ceiling. So I'd jump over archways and avoid lights while bumping into furniture that was actually in my way. It is this childlike curiosity that leads me to create different illusionary spaces with mirror and stained glass.

I've been working with stained glass for over ten years but it was during my later half of college at Minnesota State University, Mankato that I decided to really pursue it as a three dimensional medium. I strive to push the boundaries of glass as a sculptural medium using the Tiffany method of construction (copper foil and solder). During college I took the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy and studied mosaics and sculpture. This learning experience has been very helpful in developing new methods of working with glass.

I received a BFA for Sculpture and a BA for Theatre Design and Technology (Costumes and Lighting) from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2011. My love for fine art and theatrical arts have always been competing for my time, but I've found a way to combine all my interested into a cohesive body of artwork. After college I applied and received a grant to make my work titled "Abstract Reflections." For my opening I designed myself an art dress inspired by the work and it was a big hit! So it's definitely something I plan to pursue and hope to make my art dresses for others to enjoy wearing.

Thank you so much for you interest and support!

Welcome to Keiks Designs! I create one-of-a-kind handmade fused glass jewelry. I look at each piece as a separate composition so there are never two created exactly alike though sometimes similar. That being said I can gladly create duplicate sets of earrings, necklaces or bracelets for you. Or if you don't see something you were specifically looking for but like my style; message me with a description of your desired item and I'd happily create it for you! Just message me for a custom order.
