About Us

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.

Items offered: Coordinating sets, pendants, earrings,
rings, pins, tie tacks, cuff links

    Hi, I am currently working on a fundraising committee for The London Sanctuary, it is a 501c non profit animal rescue, would you mind if we advertise your site on our different web pages, in hopes to help both your sales and our fundraiser. How does this work?

    I am very interest in the paw print that you have under Animal Lovers, it is different than the other one, but I just love that one. I met a lady today named Deena at PetCo and she was wearing it and I feel in love with it, could you please give me a price I would love to order and I am also interested in the peice on your facebook page “Beleive”, if you can live me the price of both I would really appreciate it.

    Hi Laurie! When we spoke at BSL, you said you would donate pig pendants for SASHA Farm Banquet silent auction. You can send to me at POBox 104, Dexter, MI 48130. Much appreciated! Say hi to Don!

      Hi Cody: Thanks for messaging me. When is your event? I can get them out in the next week. Don says HI back. We did the Sauerkraut festival in Ohio this past weekend. Can you display my business cards too?

      • Laurie says:

        Hi Cody:
        I am hoping you received the pendants I sent and hope you guys have a great event!! I was thinking about coming but my sales for the last 6 shows have been either a loss or break even. I guess I’m having a string of bad luck. Can the sanctuary send me a donation receipt? My address is: Laurie Whisnant 1927 Magnolia, Commerce Twp., MI 48390 Thanks! (and thank you for displaying my business cards!)
