« The use of glass bubbles as a repetitious element drives the conceptual content of my work. The jewelry I create challenges perceptions of what glass can and can’t do. It appears fragile, but is surprisingly strong. The bubbles have movement and take on a sculptural form. Lamp-worked and annealed borosilicate glass bubbles with powdered colored glass, frit glass, silver nitrate, slide film, paper images, glass-texturizing and molding techniques.«
