New jewelry at Ann’s is named for the spectular light displays you can see in the night sky in various parts of the world. Artist Patti Quinn combines glass pieces in a range of colors and textures, fuses them and then fires them at high temperatures before hand setting them in sterling silver bezels. Each is unique and hand-made, mounted on strands of pearls and semi-precious stones to wear as necklaces and bracelets.
