The first in an earring / pendant set from our Fire collection. These earrings are fused with an embedded, fully integrated preform cast, perfect fire polish, mirror finish on back, and fitted with delicate sterling silver findings. This piece is created to express fire encapsulated in the darkness. Also wanting to express playfulness, this piece is named "Fire Beans"
This square pendant uses the optical illusion of convex projection. Designed to draw the eye through space, the glass recalls visions of a fading suns heat shimmer over the ocean. A precise reaction can be seen captured between the proportioned bands of color providing even further depth to the piece. Take a deep breath and remember the “Horizon”
In this last set for our Fire element collection, we have designed two large pendants. This time we have used a full fuse technique with a sulfur reaction and a subtle cooling blue between yellow fields of melted glass. To enhance the tactile experience of this pendant we have designed it with a fine frost finish on the back. This piece named in sympathy to the other in this set of two and is called “Perpetuation”
Aimed at capturing a memorable day at the beach this piece is created through multiple glass firings. Both texture and surface reactions are used to create the spectrum of moods one can find spending a long day on the water’s edge. Finished with a splash of fun the sterling silver bail has a twist and is fit with our white silk sash. Take a deep breath and enjoy “Sand and Sea”
The architectural form of a “Silver Field” leading to a slender bail Creates the feeling of an exotic expanse falling into a luminous backdrop of high set even clouds from a plane of expressive color. Set in a vanilla base, the organic flowing edges and rough frost finish on the back give an undeniable sensation of the Earth element.
Capturing the soft erosion of riverbank sands after a rain, this asymmetrical piece is purposed with holding a moment in time that is otherwise fleeting. A glimpse into the power of time “Sorra” shows how one thing builds another. With gratitude towards the grace of creation this pendant is finished with a Royal cut finding.
This final piece in the water collection is a culmination of themes and gives a special note to design as it is reversible. One side is mirror polished and shows itself as if viewed from beneath the cooling water. The other side captures the rapid rippling of a live stream and is displayed as if rushing between New England slate rock. This pendant truly captures motion and shows some amazing things glass can do. This fifth piece dedicated to the water element is named “Steel River”
With a light touch we have endeavored to embrace the essence of open air. The wonderful feeling of being free and untouchable. Unbridled and pure imagination not the least restrained, as free as the will of the wind. This doubled clear glass pendant is polished all the way around to a mysterious wet shine and is finished with a Royal cut finding. Perhaps “Whimsy” is a part of your story?
Bringing the use of a copper reaction to bear “Wildfire” is a finely contrasted piece with an undeniably vibrant look. Intrigue and captivation come to mind when handling this pendant that is finished with an inscribed sterling silver bail.
Working with different levels of focus, the “Wisteria” pendant brings together the memory of a late spring’s night in the garden. Dancing colors of blue and purple set on a sparkling back drop illuminated by a silver sky, send life to the lengthened shadows drawn through the center of the glass. Depth and serenity bring wonder alive in this unique piece.
This addition to the earring and pendant set inspired by a late moonlit evening provides understated elegance to the mood of the moment. Holding the essence of a mystical nights sweet dew on a tear drop finding, “Wisteria” has the subtle touch of an evenings embrace.
