Natural fibers like hemp, flax, bamboo are long lasting, practical, never out of style, safe for skin and health. Their seeds and oils have long known benefits, they grow well without pesticides and the fiber is naturally superior in strength and durability. They are breatheable, do not absorb odors and deter bacteria. That is not true for commercial textiles of our disposable and throw-away culture.
I started my journey in glass by creating jewelry and immediately became addicted to the medium.
I have worked in Maryland, Washington DC and now Seattle, maintaining my own studio. I enjoy running my business, Glass Elements, selling fused glass jewelry and housewares on etsy.com as well as in local juried art shows. But my favorite part of working in this medium is helping people find their joy in glass.
