"Mix a passion for creating, a passion for ephemera and a passion for designing with glass and jewelry grade solder, and you come up with small pieces of art to wear and use as home d├ęcor. Each of our US made charms is individually made in our studio.

Our art consists of our creations as well as some art by other unique media artists. Over the years we have collected and created thousands of images used in our hand crafted glass art charms.

In addition to our charms and ornaments we also create other jewelry pieces using sterling, lampwork and gems. Along with all of our statement pieces we also create custom work."
