Christine Wilson of Blu Dragonfly has been a friend of AAE GLASS for a long time. She recently took Tanya Veit's Extreme Glass Fusing Workshop in Denver Colorado. These are 2 of the pieces she made. She has several beautiful dichroic glass pieces in her ETSY STORE. Take a moment to learn a little more about Christine and her dichroic glass art.
Here is a bit about Christine:
I originally started out making lampwork jewelry. One day I decided to take a fusing glass class at a local studio to see what it was all about. I was hooked and started creating fused glass jewelry in my home studio. All the pieces are started from scratch – I cut out the glass and create the design using dichroic glass and custom-made frit combinations. In some of my pendants I select a decal that best fits the colors in the pendant. Some of the pieces require several firings. My jewelry consists of earrings, barrettes, bracelets and pendants. I have been buying my decals from AAE glass and was so excited when Tanya's Extreme Fusing Workshop was coming to . This is the best class I have ever taken and what I learned has expanded my horizons in the fusing glass jewelry arena! I highly recommend this class to anyone who has the opportunity to take it.
I originally started giving my jewelry as gifts to family and friends as well as selling to my co-workers. The jewelry grew in popularity and I set up an Etsy website - www.BluDragonfly.etsy.com. My jewelry has been given as gifts all over the world. I also do local art shows and craft fairs in Northern and the Denver area.
Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your process and business Christine. We wish you much success in the future.
