About

Whispers Of Love That Never Fade Away

Welcome to Whispering Raven Co. My name is Samantha and I am the glass artist behind all the creations in my shop.

Since opening my stained glass studio in 2006, I've created many artworks, some of which were small and others as large as french doors. Regardless of what I made, I was always pushing myself to learn new techniques and took pride in a job well done. But I never before experienced a connection to my work like I discovered in 2016.

Many ideas for the items available in my shop come from personal need. The first memorial gift I ever made was for my sister when she suffered the loss of their family dog in 2015. I decided to make paw print keychains with angel wings and a halo since their dog's name was "Angel." I had to choke back tears when I gave her the keychain as it was such a surprisingly meaningful gesture that went deeper than any words I could have spoken.

Not having dealt with the loss of any close family members or friends before, my world was turned upside down in February 2016. My friend who had been diagnosed with brain cancer the year before, passed on Valentine's Day. Then, three days later, I lost my Grandfather (the first of all my grandparents.)

I've always been a sentimental person and I love to hold onto family heirlooms especially when I know the story behind them. My grandparents had downsized just a few years before and we were given some of their belongings like my Grandfather's old wood working hand tools. These were tucked away safely in our garage, which tragically on the same night my Grandfather died, caught fire. A few things were salvaged, but mostly everything was gone.

I had been dealt 3 huge losses over 4 days all of which I grieved at the same time. I can't possibly say that I know what all types of grief feel like, but I do know that I can empathize and hold a special place for those suffering loss.

The idea of a Christmas memorial ornament with a photo was brought up later in the year by a family member. I felt it was a wonderful idea and I made some for us, and also added it to the shop. And the business of making memorial items materialized.

As the orders came in, it's like a part of me awoke. I felt honoured and blessed. I was creating memorial gifts that people would cherish forever. Each one very meaningful to the loved one who would receive it.

The heartfelt responses they sent me after receiving their parcels, filled me with a sense of purpose. I was helping them honour their loved ones who'd passed. Helping them hold onto memories and hear the whispers and reminders of love that never fades away.

My husband used to joke with me years ago that I had a knack for making people cry when I gave them a gift. That was never my intention, but it was often a byproduct of gift giving for me. When you give a truly meaningful gift, it touches the heart of the recipient in such a way that it brings a flood of emotions. Those are the gifts, that you can be certain they'll treasure forever.

I would like to thank you for browsing my shop today and reading my story.

    I am passionately creative and love working with glass. Seeing something created from seemingly nothing, excites me to the core. I also love to paint ~ pulling each brush stroke to create imagery. There's a little story that unfolds in every piece.
