Where did 2016 go?! I can hardly believe how fast time passes as I get older. Although It has been a while ( okay, a long,long while 🙂) since I posted, it does not mean I have not been learning about and creating glass art!
Last spring I went to a Glass Craft Expo in Las Vegas where I learned so many new and exciting techniques that I became quite overwhelmed! It will take me years to explore and develope everything that was packed into those five days!
In the fall I joined my daughter in Europe and travelled through Italy and France. Of course we visited Murano, Italy where some of the most incredible glass art sculptures in the world are found. This is also the place where a lot of the glass I use to create my Beads is manufactured.
