Vintage Chanel Chain Glass Link Jewelry

Martini with Olives Necklace
Ta da! I've finally started using all the fabulous vintage 1970s era Chanel chain that I picked up at the Society for American Mosaic Artists conference in Lexington, Kentucky a month ago!
Faux Brown Stone Necklace

The chain caught my eye right away because I knew it would complement the oval cast glass links that I've been creating. These are now listed for sale in my Etsy shop, so head over and pick one up. These are truly one-of-a-kind. When the chain is gone, there's nowhere to get more!

Riley Elementary Residency in Fused Glass

Mrs. Northup started the kids on their fused glass journals before the project started

I recently completed a month long residency with the 2nd and 3rd grade classes at Riley Elementary School in Lincoln, Nebraska. Funding for the project was provided by grants from Americorps and the Nebraska Arts Council, with Miss Mollie Magnuson of the Lincoln Arts Council (& Americorps) organizing the whole thing!
Cutting glass is fun!

Before starting with the first week's project of cutting glass, Mrs. Northup guided the class in creating both "I'm a Glass Artist" books (to document the process, and in teacher-speak...'Making Learning Visible'), as well as getting them started on a sketch...a highly detailed sketch that filled an entire sheet of paper!
