All glass cabochons, in my designs, have been properly annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for added durability and strength.


I opened this shop in 2010 but took a break from making jewelry to focus on my glass cabochons for a while. I reopened this shop in January of 2016 ... it's good to be creating jewelry again!

Metalsmith ~ Artisan Jewelry ~ Art to wear

Hi! My name is Mikelene. I'm a self taught jewelry designer/fabricator. I started designing jewelry in 1984, selling at Art Festivals. I was eventually approached by boutique owners, art galleries, and started selling wholesale across the USA.

I began experimenting in 2005 with glass (lampworking) ... wanting something unique, organic, to incorporate into my jewelry, I started creating organic glass cabochons and offering them to other jewelry designers, here on Etsy, in my Growing Edge Glass shop. Take a peek here .... https://www.etsy.com/shop/GrowingEdgeGlass

I've recently started exploring Lapidary work ... cutting my own stone cabochons that l'll be setting in my work as well as lovely stone cabs cut by others.

I'm never quite sure how to respond when someone asks what 'style' of jewelry I create. I guess I would say it's contemporary, artsy, soft-industrial, artisan jewelry. I prefer a matte finish on my pieces, just a soft sheen. I love the juxtaposition of matte metal and sparkling gemstones with bursts of color!

Each piece of my jewelry is a story that I build, a feeling or message, perhaps, that begs to be conveyed. I'm in bliss when at my bench and can only hope that each piece of my work is imbued with that joy and then passed on to its ultimate owner.

with gratitude,

~Mikelene
