My sister and I design, and handcraft, one-of-a-kind, beaded, and stained glass jewelry, as well as, contemporary stained glass window designs. Our jewelry consists of mixed metals, freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystal, and Czech glass. We work as a team, inspiring and influencing one another, often collaborating on many of our pieces. What began as an effort to help our 14-year-old niece raise funds for a mission trip to Peru, has now blossomed into a full-scale passion! We have been making, exhibiting and selling our work for the past three years, and have participated in numerous art ventures across Massachusetts, including, Newton Harvest Fair, Oktoberfest in Harvard Square, The International School of Boston Boutique, and The Arsenal Center for the Arts, but find Open Studios to be the most rewarding; the positive feedback from attendees, as well as the interaction and encouragement from other artists, has been a truly wonderful experience. We are thrilled to participate in West Medford Open Studios, again, this year, as a way to support the arts, and as a creative outlet for what has become a very happy addiction!
