Susan started creating Stained Glass in 1981. It has evolved into creating jewelry, frames and mirrors using stained glass techniques in an non-traditional way. With an abundance of scraps and always being a true recycler Susan became interested in Mosaics. She has worked in mosaics as small as a ring and as large as the exterior of a clawfoot bathtub! In recent years, painting furniture has been added , and most recently using the excess Piano Ivories her Piano Tuning/Technician husband has to create jewelry, frames and mirrors.
