HAF Artisan Spotlight – A Touch of Glass

Sultry, sulky ladies on fused glass and domino pendants, found elements combined with glass faces to make ladies in dresses, unique and beautiful handmade jewelry – this and much more can be found on A Touch of Glass’ blog and studios by Brenda Miller. Her Etsy studio has the tag line “Wearable Art by A Touch of Glass.” These pendants and earrings are just that. They are each formed by hand with a wonderfully eclectic mix of materials.

Art glass pendant, cat pendant, lampwork earrings

Brenda is an artist from Southwest Michigan – and we all know that nothing bad ever comes out of Michigan. (Take me for example!) Her work is not only captivating, but unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. This is an aritsan that deserves a visit from you! You can find her on Etsy, Artfire, and Ebay, and she has a fun blog, too.

    Incredible work, love your choices. How do you get that collage-type picture? That's cool.

    I use Picassa to do the collages. Just select the pictures you want in the collage, and then click on “make collage” you can do a lot of different things with it from there. I use the free version, too.
