Glass is fun!!
All the jewelry is handmade of recycled glass. This is real glass that comes from windows and other more traditional sources.We use float glass. Float is a is a sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal. This method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces. We use float glass from windows and frames.
The glass is cut, polished, and cleaned thoroughly. Any dirt or contaminants on the glass will encourage devitrification (an unattractive blurry, milky surface on the final piece). Once the glass is shaped and cleaned it is ready to be colored. Now, the fun starts!!! We paint it with glass enamels and assemble the layers one on top of the other to carefully place the in the kiln to fuse. During the firing, when the glass reaches fusing point (1475F +) the layers melt together, round sharp edges and improve the colors and texture of the surface. That is when the magic happens! When the glass fuses, colors become vibrant, the glass bubbles and each design becomes a unique creation due to the "vitro-fusion" process.
"Eco-friendly jewelry" at its finest!
