Out of Our Minds (O3M) is the brainchild of Barbara Koffer and Sam Schmer.

We met in the world of advertising soon after graduating from college with our BFAs.
After many years of working together in art direction and graphic design, we have
embarked upon a new venture - fused glass!

Each one of our pieces is hand-crafted in one of our two Northern Virginia studios. Our jewelry designs involve combining layers of iridized, opaque, transparent and dichroic glass. We then cut, kiln-fire, shape and polish each piece into a one-of-a-kind treasure. Our larger kilnformed glass pieces are created utilizing a variety of design and cold working techniques that result in contemporary and functional works of art that make the most extraordinary gifts.

Care instructions

Gold-filled and Sterling Silver: Always take off your jewelry before showering. Extended exposure to moisture can increase the patina (natural darkening). If you shower in your jewelry simply remove after showering and wipe with a soft cloth. Sterling silver will tarnish/oxidize over time. Not to worry, this is not permanent. A simple jewelry cleaner or baking soda and water can bring back the brilliant shine.
