In addition to my fused glass work, I also create altered art jewelry. In my altered art jewelry, I combine objects and images to evoke an emotional response in the viewer. My favorite themes are whimsy, wanderlust and our journey through this life.
I make pendants, earrings, rings and bracelets. In addition, I create pieces using recycled bottles that I’ve flattened in my kiln. They become the canvas I create on. These pieces become wall art or magnets. I call them Altered Bottles.
I enjoy working on these pieces and find the work relaxing as my sub conscious picks and chooses the bits and pieces to combine in a way that stirs the soul. I present them here, for you, and hope they will speak to you as well.
No two pieces are alike and each takes me many hours to assemble. I add bits and remove bits, arrange them and rearrange them, until the piece seems ‘right’.
