a beautiful fused glass pendant, dark cobalt blue background, white and gold enameled butterfly, that was in two juried art shows in 2011 (Jacoby Arts Center and The Glass Workbench) – because I love beauty and butterflies and glass and Christmas is all about connecting with the ones we love, thinking about what they would appreciate, what would bring them joy, and because butterflies have always meant hope to me…
If you miss ArtEAST – it’s this weekend, Oct. 20 & 21, 11-5 – the Madison County IL studio art tour is in its 15th year…
I will be showing handmade glass jewelry & mixed media items at the Jacoby Arts Center on Broadway in Alton, along with 18 other artists – and more within walking distance! A nice way to spend your weekend….supporting local arts!
