Liquidambar

Kitty is the "online" face behind the Liquidambar Studio but it is really a family affair.  Her husband, John, and both of their children create the wonderful things in their shop.

They sell pottery, clay jewelry, glass jewelry, and other types of jewelry.


Perusing their blog, I learned a little bit about the creative techniques.  They make their pendants with cast glass pieces using "frit".  What's "frit", you ask?  I know I asked that...LOL  "Frit" is crushed pieces of glass.

This is how they get those varied colors and looks to the pendants.  Each pendant is literally a one-of-a-kind item and could never be completely reproduced.  How cool is that?

I had a very difficult time choosing 4 items to share with you...especially, since I'm partial to blue and my eyes kept going to everything blue in the shop.  LOL

What are you still here?  LOL  Hop on over to the studio and take a gander at the large selection in their shop.  We'd love for you to come back and tell us what's your favorite item.  :o)
