Laurie K:

“I work with quite a wide collection of Opaque, Iridescent, Transparent and Dichroic Glass.

From the start of cutting, designing and the firing process, each piece of my jewelry has approximately 20-25 hours invested into it.  I usually work my kiln between 1350 – 1500 degrees and annealed slowly for strength and durability.  With manipulation of time and temperature, I can design a piece that has a smooth texture or something with a more 3-D dramatic depth to it. Each piece is hand crafted and designed in my home studio and can never be duplicated in the same way again.

Items offered:  3 pc. coordinating sets, pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings, pins, tie tacks and cuff links.

I have been displaying my jewelry work at several craft shows and art festivals throughout the state of Michigan as well as at The Desert Botanical Gardens gift shop in Phoenix, AZ during the Dale Chihuly glass exhibit (2009).  It excites me to share my work and my passion of glass.“
