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.

Material: Jewelry

Description

Necklace and earrings with beads made from vintage mason jar glass.  Each bead has a ridged design with a large bead in the center.  Glass artist Bonnie Scott has developed a process for transforming antique mason jar glass into beads.  She melts the glass at 3000 degrees, then individually creates new shapes from the molten glass.
