The main reason I started this was to keep everyone up on the progression of our glass endeavors.
My husband is a lampwork artist and I am the fused glass artist. We make pieces and transform them into wearable art. It started off as a hobby we both shared and would make them for myself or to give as gifts.
Last year I was finally talked into selling them and realized I actually could sell them after a Holly Days Bazaar Show. In February we were a featured artists at a First Friday event for a local clothing store here in Fairbanks called Willow Creek Clothing. Both were a success.
Now my jewelry sits in a new shop downtown Fairbanks called The Stash. Most of my inventory will go there. I love how everything in the shop are handmade items and are from our local artists and the owners are just such awesome gals.
In the midst of football season going on and my husband's crazy work schedule I am trying to find time to just experiment. I want to dive more into metal and incorporate that with my glass. I am also contemplating(wishing it will come through) taking a metalsmithing class offered at our University this fall.
This so called hobby has grown for us. I am just so tickled to know my jewelry is liked by many but to be able to sell it to at least make up for more materials has really made it a real passion for us.
Here is a sample of how far along we have come.
