Please keep in mind that the photographed item is a representation of what you will receive. As with all handmade, no two are ever exactly alike.
Absolutely no butterflies were harmed or harvested in the making of my butterfly necklaces for women. All specimens I have are found after they have naturally expired or I have obtained from aviaries after they have expired naturally.
Meet the Maker
I opened Bayou Glass Arts in 2010 but didnt really get serious until 2013 when I began working my jewelry full time. The "Tiffany" method of applying copper foil and solder is the process I use in making my jewelry. There is an industrial and organic sense to both the look and feel of my work. I use the highest quality metal sensitive friendly solder (no nickel, no lead). Brass and copper are my jewelry findings of choice and my packaging is thoughtful and secure to assure your purchases arrive safely.
Custom work is at the core. Creating unique mementos or keepsakes with a personal touch, not duplicated or manufactured. I enjoy knowing my customers and working with them to create the perfect gift for either themselves or others. This personal touch and making certain the experience is a pleasant one, this matters to me.
I believe in handmade. I buy handmade and vintage whenever I can and truly feel that by supporting one another we create our own micro-economy of better quality and entrepreneurship.
How it’s Made
My medium is called “Tiffany” technique. It is the method of applying copper foil, wire and solder to form my jewelry designs. All of my work is newly made with either an intentional aged appearance of oxidized silver or shiny silver. The metal is applied with an iron as opposed to a torch which lends to an organic sense, both to the look and feel of each of my pieces. The solder is a mix of metals, which is metal sensitive friendly, no zinc, no nickel, no lead. I use the highest quality glass which does not scratch or yellow like resin. Please keep in mind that the photographed item is a representation of what you will receive. As with all handmade, no two are ever exactly alike. Each piece is lovingly handmade by me in my studio on the bayou here in Louisiana. My packaging is thoughtful and secure to assure your purchases arrive safely. If you have any questions, please contact me.
