Quick Blurb

I love dichroic glass! Combining it with wire wrapping or PMC...what fun to share with others!!!

Interests

I have a variety of interests...my family, my pets, spending time with friends, reading, listening to music, creating jewelry out of dichroic glass, wire wrapping a cabochon or creating something totally made from wire.

Skills and Techniques

I love working with stained and dichroic glass. Creating pieces, firing them in my kiln and seeing what happens is a joy. I love the fact that each piece is different. Learning the technique of wire wrapping was a natural evolution. Now I'm working with precious metal clay. Each day brings something new to light. It is so much fun being able to grow, create and share something unique with others.

Get to Know

I have played with stained glass off and on for over 20 years. Early in 2007 I was introduced by a friend to dichroic glass and the process of fused (or kiln fired) art glass as well as the technique of wire-wrapping. I gave several pieces to friends and family as gifts and just to share. They have encouraged me to take my hobby a step further and to share it with others. I am now working with precious metal clay. What fun and something new to share. My pieces are currently on consignment at Designers Boutique, a local boutique and gift shop. That shop also features my Designers Bling t-shirts with rhinestone designs.

    This is one of my favorite pieces. I love the way the pink dichroic is enriched by the 14k rose gold wire.

    This is one of my work areas. I cut and fire my glass here. I tend to do my wire wrapping and bead work in our family room so that I can be with my family.

    This pendant was one that I created for a guild "Red, White and Blue" contest. The customer who bought it loved it.
