So, if you’ve been thinking about finding those little scraps of lace or vintage heirloom textiles or a wedding dress that’s been in the family for ages (or even that is brand new) & having me put it under glass as a necklace or ornament or wall hanging for a holiday gift….I’m starting to accept those orders now!!! Better to be safe than sorry! Send me an email if you want to discuss a design idea —- people are always so happy to receive a meaningful gift! #handmade #copperandtorch

Spent some this afternoon looking through my tiny art collection, making this flag and pondering what it means to be an American. Our nations history, the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly are found in each miniature canvas. Stamps about politics, ethics, space travel, art, wars, philanthropy, peace, heroes, it’s a complete story. I’m proud to be a part of this story as an American Maker. Doing my part to add some beauty to this life while I’m here. Thankful for those who paved the way before me. I’m a finalist for the Martha Stewart American Made Awards this year. I’d really love to have your vote starting September 15th…thank you for helping me keep writing my success story. Glad to be on this journey together! @americanmademsl #marthastewartawards #madeintheusa #makersgonnamake #copperandtorch @marthastewart

Made a half dozen of these today! I really love the nature walk necklace/ the story behind this design I owe to my daughter Lily- whenever we would hike when she was little bitty, she would collect pebbles, feathers, leaves, basically anything and then force me to stuff my pockets with her findings…now she can carefully curate her collections and keep them close to her heart💜 #handmade #copperandtorch #designwithpurpose

A brisk morning walk after the rain never fails to yield treasure for my terrariums! #gooutside

I guess you can see from this image (by @jenngietzen ) that the sky is the limit when it comes to building with glass! I love working with glass for so many reasons and making home decor is so much fun- from coasters and card holders, to planters and lighting, I’m so happy when my designs come to life in my studio and then come to live in your homes! Every single time my email dings with a new order, I’m thankful for all of you who feel the same way! #thankful #bestjobever #glassartist #madeintheusa #madeinthesouth #handmade #makersgonnamake #copperandtorch
