I have been in love with colored glass in all forms since I was a small child. My mother had a glass collection that I was not allowed to touch. In 2017 I was introduced to recycled glass sculptures and it changed my creative life. I have branched out into many different forms of this art including using colorful glass beads for my projects. I am finding vintage jewelry pieces and beads to be some of the most interesting design elements to create new forms of handmade jewelry of my own design.
