Story Behind the Art:
A life long collector of antique bottles and glass, I have spent countless hours digging through the many antique glass dumps found so commonly in the Pennsylvania Amish Country where I live. One day while on a dig, I noticed a baby fawn and her mother laying nearby. When they caught my scent they were up and away and I was horrified to realize they had been laying on the jagged remains of an old broken bottle. I then realized the effect this old glass is having on the wildlife and environment and changed my mission. I began bringing home the broken pieces and in an effort to let these beautiful but broken treasures live on, they are lovingly handmade into beautiful modern jewelry. As a life-long collector, each piece includes "The Story of the Glass" detailing the history and age of the glass used.
