Aurora Glass Jewelry

Artist Patti Quinn’s Aurora Fused Glass designs are original and hand-made.  She combines a variety of glass elements to create art-quality pendants by fusing them and firing at high temperatures before hand setting them in sterling silver bezels.  “Aurora” refers to the spectacular Northern Lights, a natural display of breathtaking and ever changing colors.  In Roman mythology, the goddess Aurora heralds the dawn, flying across the sky in anticipation of the sun, filling the heavens with color.   Aurora Glass Jewelry is truly inspirational:

Starlight Necklace Patti weaves her magic by combining strands of bright purple freshwater large pearls, Swarovski crystal seed beads, navy blue vintage glass beads in 3 shapes and a hand-made silver toggle & ring closure.  The Pendant is midnight blue square hand-made fused glass set in sterling, hand-cut blue drusy quartz crystal, two large oval and tri-cut amethyst-navy blue coin pearls, and peacock BIWA (from mussels grown in Lake BIWA in Japan) freshwater pearl.  $549 More Patti Quinn Jewelry at Ann’s, click here.

Anniversary Gifts: 3 years means Pearls

Thinking of giving her jewelry for your 3 year anniversary?  Pearls are the traditional gift.   (See the chart, here.)  Pearl jewelry always makes a thoughtful gift because pearls are timeless.  (That’s why pearls are listed early on the chart…what you give her in year 3 can be enjoyed for many years to come.)   She can wear a strand the traditional way or mixed with other materials for a more modern look.  We love Majorica pearl jewelry for its quality and beauty.  Pearls should be a special gift.  Why not make it Majorica pearls from Ann’s?
