My current focus is creating flame-work glass beads using Recycled Antique Mason Jar Glass. The challenge is how to develop interesting beads and finished jewelry designs from a singular color. Adding other glass elements could create instability within the glass when it cools, so there are defined limits. Experimentation with glass density, shape, surface finish and texture, elicit a variety of responses. When the finished pieces are worn, they create a human connection to the energy of the jar history and the personal story of the recipient or gift-giver. There is no greater reward for my work than personal connection.

“I have been making flame-worked glass beads since 2004.  My current focus is creating beads using Recycled Antique Mason Jar Glass.  The challenge is how to develop interesting pieces from a singular color because adding other glass elements could create instability within the glass when it cools.  People have strong feelings about the antique canning jars and, whatever the conversation, they have a story to tell.  This line of glass work helps recycle a piece of history by renewing the bond with the story and creates an heirloom quality keepsake to use and enjoy.  There is no greater reward for my work than personal connection.”
