“Over the years I have explored many traditional flame-working techniques. I created original design thread spool beads and unique glass buttons because of my modern quilting hobby. I then discovered a passion for using recycled glass. It started because I lived in the Finger Lakes Region of New York in the hills surrounding Seneca lake, where wineries are plentiful. I began by making custom jewelry pieces for brides from their recycled event bottles. I then made wine bottle jewelry for the wineries. This has grown to include my current exploration of recycled antique blue and green Ball Canning Jars. The memories that touch people when they wear a piece of jewelry from meaningful recycled glass, fills my heart with joy!”
