Busy getting ready for these two fundraisers designing and fusing glass for jewelry and my stainless steel bottle stoppers.

I begin by cutting and adding layers of fusable glass, heating them in my kiln to 1500 degrees.  Once the glass has cooled, I grind it to shape and return it to the kiln to fire polish the rough edges. Then the fun begins as I attach the new glass to their settings (this is where I find out how accurate I have ground the glass!)

Seeking Fall and Holiday Opportunities!

I am in process of scheduling my fall and holiday shows at lots of exciting new venues!

Very excited to share my new fused glass wine stoppers paired with my exclusive            Over the Buffalo Moon stoppers. Both are heavy duty stainless steel and very sturdy!

Great with a bottle of wine from one of many fine local wineries!

$20 each or $35 for the boxed set
