Featured Etsian Artist~shepherdcreations
We are a husband-and-wife team that are passionate about glass art from the flame. Nature is our best inspiration...
Glasswork became our passion, then we branched into sculptures.
We love nature, so stop by often for different glass animals.
We started out making our own beaded jewelry, but we always had a hard time finding the right colors of beads.
"I'm Patrice, the primary artisan, and my husband Paul built and maintains our studio and also enjoys working with glass. I began my journey into glass via beadwork, starting in seed beads. It is easy to spend hours in a bead store browsing and choosing your favorites, but it is often difficult to find just the right colors or patterns that suit your individuality. This is why I began melting glass: I wanted truly unique beads to use in my own handcrafted jewelry. However, once I began making my own beads, I realized how exciting sculpture and pendants are to make, so our studio was born of a realized passion for hard glass. "
