Glass is amazing! It’s a suspended liquid that moves and flows. It changes with light and the lack of light! It's smooth and glossy, it has texture and depth. It's cool, it's hot, it melts, but is strong. It sparkles. It shines. It even casts rainbows. Oh glass, how I love you!
I'm Susan, a stained glass artisan. I also work with fused glass, and make handcrafted jewelry.
This, my blog, it's where I post pics, ramble on, and share things that catch my eye, turn me on, spark a reaction, or that I just plain like. You can find pictures of projects in progress here, instead of just the finished pieces on Etsy.
I have an little shop on Etsy called Glitz & Grandeur. You can connect directly to Etsy, or directly to my shop by clicking the appropriate 'Etsy' or 'Glitz & Grandeur' link below.
You can also find my page on Facebook under "Artists" as Glitz & Grandeur, or click the Facebook icon below. The same goes for my Pinterest boards.
