Since attending her first flameworking class in 2009, Dinah has been making a range of glass jewelry. Using an oxygen-propane torch she melts the tip of a glass rod and wraps it around steel. She then either shapes the bead with various tools or adds more glass to create a pleasing pattern or an organic design. Dinah also enjoys teaching beginning flameworking and jewelry making.
Jennifer has degrees in Math and Education from UVA. She has always loved creating beauty and finding symmetry and repetitive patterns in the world around her. As a life-long learner, Jennifer has followed her love for art and studied calligraphy, black & white film photography, pottery, Japanese flower arranging, ancient Chinese calligraphy, and computer graphics. Jennifer is known for her greeting cards in a folk art style, many featuring mandalas and geometric designs. She loves to hide words in her art, so look closely!
