I am drawn to glass and I love it’s beauty and possibilities! My love of art has found it’s way into the world of beauty through glass. If I make you feel good by wearing a piece of my jewelry, then my goal has been accomplished. It excites me to share my love of glass and the joy of my journey with others. You are part of that pathway and I thank you!
I have been displaying my jewelry work at several craft shows and art festivals throughout the state of Michigan for over 6 years, as well as at The Desert Botanical Gardens gift shop in Phoenix, AZ during the Dale Chihuly glass exhibit (2009).
Description of Materials and Techniques:
Fused Glass Jewelry. I work with quite a wide collection of Opaque, Iridescent, Transparent and Dichroic Glass. From the start of cutting, designing and the firing process, each piece of my jewelry has approximately 15-25 hours invested into it. I usually work my kiln between 1350 – 1500* degrees and annealed slowly for strength and durability. With manipulation of time and temperature, I can design a piece that has a smooth texture or something with a more 3-D dramatic depth to it. Each piece is hand crafted and designed in my home studio and can never be duplicated in the same way again.
