Artist Statement:

Multiple layers of hand-cut & fitted dichroic glass are fused together under very high heat for over 15 hours. Once fused, the glass is then combined with the highest quality fine silver, sterling silver, crystals & gemstones to create jewelry pieces that are truly one of a kind.
Fascinated by the play of light through glass, and the changing color qualities of dichroic glass in particular, Kristen has pursued studies in glass fusing & casting this past decade through education in both Oregon & Washington. She currently resides in beautiful Port Townsend, Washington.
Studio not open during remainder of the year.
