Please know that I do my best to represent each piece and the exact colors that are in a piece in every image that I photograph. However, do to differences in graphics cards, monitors, and browsers there is always the chance that an image's colors may vary slightly from the actual piece.~Top of page~
My jewelry is handcrafted not only to be beautiful, but also to be durable and lasting. I want each piece to be a one-of-a-kind treasure that can be passed on to the next generation. I take great care to ensure that each piece is solid and durable.
Each piece that has been made of fused glass is strong and will withstand normal daily wear. All of my fused glass is annealed in the kiln to provide extra strength to the glass. I have been using this technique for many years to ensure quality craftsmanship. Each piece that has been patinated has also been sealed to protect the patina.
Remember that artisan jewelry will be a lasting treasure with normal daily wear. Please keep the following in mind:
As with my fused glass jewelry, other fused glass pieces are annealed in the kiln for strength and are constructed to be durable and long lasting. In order to keep fused glass dishware nice and to retain the quality, I recommend hand washing. Placing the dishware into a dishwasher for cleaning can cause the surface to be marred by abrasive detergents. Also, please keep in mind that any glass, no matter how durable, may crack or break when hit against or dropped onto a hard surface.~Top of page~
