Color makes me happy. Maybe because I have lived under the gray skies of the Pacific Northwest my entire life, I can’t help but to embrace it. As a child, I discovered the joy of working with glass when my grandmother taught me how to cut and grind pieces for a stained glass window. Those lessons in creativity launched my interest in the medium and I have been obsessed ever since. In 2006, I decided to follow my heart and take the leap from the corporate world into doing what I love most – spending time with my two daughters and pursuing my passion for glass art. Largely self-taught, I have been working in glass mosaics for the past 10 years and have studied contemporary mosaic art with local and international professionals. I am also a member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists and the Oregon Glass Guild. With the support of my loving husband, I now work from my home studio in Sherwood, Oregon and enjoy every minute of it. When I create, I feel joy. My hope is to share this joy with you through my work, and to bring just a touch of color and whimsy to your day.
This colorful line of mosaic jewelry is handcrafted with genuine Murano Millefiori. Millefiori is Italian for "a thousand flowers", and is an ancient technique where glass rods are fused together then sliced to reveal beautiful flower-like patterns. These tiny pieces of glass are hand cut, intricately arranged and fused in our studio through a cold enamel or kiln-formed process. All metalwork is sourced from the USA and consists of sterling silver, argentium silver and lead-free pewter. Our jewelry is made with love and packaged with care before leaving the studio, ensuring you receive a quality piece of wearable art to enjoy for years to come.
