I have been working in the glass media for the last 6 years. I enjoy working with this media because the glass becomes extremely fluid when it is heated so that I can manipulate it in any way I choose. I love creating unique combinations of colors and seeing what happens as I shape the beads and introduce new color mixtures. The pendants I create are unique-- I mix the colors in a twisted cane and no two ever turn out the same. I love and appreciate every aspect of working with the glass media; contorting and creating glass fascinates me!
