I am and have been a jewelry-lover forever. I took a few jewelry making classes in college studying art and became an art teacher. Since retirement, I have been able to play in the jewelry making again and have found a passion for making jewelry from natural gemstones, sterling silver, copper, clay beads, crystals, and pearls
In the line of glass, well, "Oh my" is what I say!!! I LOVE cuttin' that glass! I LOVE the beauty of all types of stained glass. I love painting on glass as well and have hand painted goblets and drinkware with flower designs and palm trees, to name a few. I have been fusing glass for jewelry pendants, earrings, hair barrettes, hot air balloon suncatchers and nightlights and am having a ball! Check it out...this beginner is going to be interesting to watch!
