Jessica Menchions first got into glass by a twist of fate.
“Come inside and see what is going on” said Grace. I had been looking in the window of the newly opened Glass Shoppe Studio. When I went inside it was revelation that I would be able to work in glass. All the beautiful colours and sparkly bits spoke to the crow in me.
“ This year I am all about colours, textures and the effects of silvered glass. I am adding materials other than glass to my necklaces such as felt, silicone and wire. Still addicted to dichroic glass, I am trying to incorporate it as much as I can in my beads. Beading really is like a box of chocolates.”
