Let's talk fused glass, beads and jewelry....
Please introduce yourself...
Why fused glass and how does it work?
In 2011 a friend who does stained glass introduced me to fused glass. I bought a tiny microwave kiln and in two weeks I blew our microwave! I bought a small counter -top kiln, which I quickly outgrew. Today my studio has taken over most of the top floor of our house and I have two kilns.
Where can we find your creations?
My fused glass designs sell at local galleries and gift shops and online on Etsy as KittyKat Glass Designs http://www.etsy.com/shop/KittyKatGlassDesigns I recently even opened a second shop on Etsy called LadyB Gems to showcase the jewelry I create with the gorgeous lampwork beads from other talented glass artists. http://www.etsy.com/shop/LadyBGems I give the bead artist credit in each listing, something most jewelry designers seem unwilling to do. They created the inspiration and deserve the credit!
What can we find in the near future in your shops?
My designs are varied and eclectic- I get bored doing the same thing all the time. This week I may work with frit, murrini and gold decals designing one of my Under the Sea pendants. ( see above)
Next week I might be stringing crystals into lovely kumihimo cords or designed a pendant with lampwork beads,such in as the blue and green fish necklace in the photo (right)
And then I will turn to my own fused glass- perhaps even making some business card holders or coasters as a break from jewelry design. So check back often to see what is new in my Etsy shop!
