d' lynn glass designs
glass art for your wardrobe and home
Hey everyone, Thanks for visiting my website. My name is Lynn Abrams and I live on the Chesapeake Bay, in Mathews, Va.
I fell in love with glass over 20 years ago and haven't stop exploring the different applications I can use it for. After art college and the birth of three children, I decided to take a stained glass class to keep by sanity. I fell in love. Glass alone is beautiful; the colors, the textures, the sheen and its diversity. Several months into my stained glass adventure, I decided to take a workshop in glass jewelry. That started my one-of-a -kind line of jewelry I now create. My styles have changed over the years. I started out with foiled glass, then added fused glass and then tumbled glass. The diverse selection of glass and different applications, combined with beads and wire, allow me to exercise my love of color in endless combinations. Wearability is always a consideration, the jewelry must be comfortable and graceful as well as sculptural, strong and well crafted.
About The Designer
I am always experimenting with ways to incorporate new materials in with the glass. My latest, is texturing metal. I hammer small accent pieces and design them into my jewelry.
Last winter I picked up kumihimo, Japanese braiding, to get me through the cold months. What a blast!!! It is a simple skill to pick up but a difficult skill to master. Keep coming back to my website and I will post my new pieces.
