fine art jewelry by
To make my kilnformed glass and sterling silver jewelry I begin with the glass. I like to work with glass colors whose different chemical makeups cause reactions when fired together. I often add tiny bits of fine silver to cause unpredictable, but beautiful reactions. I then shape, coldwork and re-fire the glass to create one-of-a-kind pieces. For some of the glass I design and fabricate sterling silver settings to create sculptural pieces of wearable art.
