WEBSITE ON VACATION!
I've never done this before, but I'm closing my website to purchases. I need time to design and fabricate new work and maybe even learn a few new skills. Re-opening is anticipated in March 2022.
Vintage glass jewelry is subject to change because of the availability of the glass.
Beads, Beads, Beads!
If you called me a bead stringer I would be offended; I'm a metalsmith. But in this instance, it felt appropriate. These next 4 pieces have no metalwork in them, but the vintage components are so fabulously special that I hope you agree what I've done with them is right. Besides, the business slowdown of Covid-19 has really given me the time to do things like make tassels, that I absolutely love doing, but is usually too time consuming to bother with. The 20's are back!!!

If you like the vintage glass jewelry that I make check out this video filmed in the Czech Republic!
It's filmed in the Gablonz region of the Czech Republic and demonstrates the process and techniques used to make the Czech glass cabochons, buttons, drops, and chandalier components that I use in my jewelry. The pieces I use were made before the 1960's, mostly from the 1920's, but this family glassworks in the film is the only glassworks left that is still using the original facility and techniques!
