like this luminous landscape, and sweet little plates, 
ornaments and mirrors, too.
Glass mosaic plate by artist Pauline Dugas Tait
Fused glass "pebble" pendant by Kelly Boverman
Kelly also does cool plates, platters

gretchen's back

 Gretchen Boylan is back with us again, with gorgeous new work.
She combines antique papers, silk ribbons, beads, old jewelry and sterling silver
to create miniature works of art.
They're tiny environments that seem to be
 of another time and place altogether.
Check them out this weekend, but come early, because they disappear quickly!
