Painting with Glass and Wire
by Diane Enger.
(Morganton, North Carolina)
I fuse glass focal pieces that I use in one of a kind statement jewelry.
I describe my style as painting with glass and wire.
The contrast between the reflective quality of glass and natural copper wire that has had a patina applied to it appeals to me.
A variety of wire working techniques bezel and compliment the glass focal.
An assortment of faceted crystals are sometimes used to intensify and balance the color and visual movement of the piece.
