Hand fused art glass bowl, vanilla and amber, by Bob Heath.

“I  create individual components that are fused separately, and then cut and shaped before ultimately being fused together. After the work is fused, it is cold-worked to achieve a professional finish on the surface and edges that brings out the inherent beauty of the glass.” BH

 

Pearl puddles, glittering gold fobs, and crystal earrings.

Fairweather jewelry artists,  Cher Flick, Mary Bottita, Mary Hurst, Mary Truhler, Nikki Hatt, Rene Hafeman, and Tanya Gardner, create one-of-a-kind designs.

    Dragonflies were the first winged insects to evolve 300 million years ago, fossils show that they had wingspans of two feet.  Dragonflies are expert fliers and can fly like a helicopter. Their flight patterns have inspired engineers designing drone robots. They live most of their as a nymph and fly only for a fraction of their life. In lore, they represent transformation, adaptation and insight.

    Grace note:

    “My daughter had a lot of nice things to say about your gallery and I look forward to being a part of it. I am happy to curate what I send to the theme of your store. Here is a little bit about me: I teach metal smithing. I have been making jewelry for about 12 years. I hand craft every piece. Each piece is one of a kind. I use high quality materials and craftsmanship.”  NH
