Donna has been creating with glass for quite a number of years.
Originally she dabbled with making stain glass. However, in 2007 a friend "introduced" her to the process of fused art glass and wire wrapping and she was hooked. Donna finds great joy in cutting and shaping glass pieces and then placing them in her kiln. She gets a real "kick" out of the beautiful results. Sometimes she likes to embellish her pieces by wire wrapping.
At first Donna made pieces for family and friends as gifts. But she was strongly encouraged to actually sell her work to others.
So, now she has her handcrafted pieces on consignment in local shops and she opened "Glass and Wire Gems" on Artfire.
It is said that a true jewelry artisan is one that actually makes the pieces used for the creation of jewelry---So, Donna is a true Jewelry Artisan.
Now let's get a taste of some of the wonderful items showcased in "Glass and Wire Gems":
Art Glass and Wire Wrapped Pendants---
Jewelry: Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings, and Rings---
Accessories: Keychains, Bookmarks, and Bottle Stoppers---
"Glass and Wire Gems" is certainly a studio with a great variety of lovely handcrafted things.
