I work in glass.I melt it in my torch flame to make glass pieces for romantic/contemporary jewelry

Leslie’s Biography

Flameworking is an intimate art: just the artist, the torch and the glass. My glass pieces, both simple and sculptural, fit together into bold, geometric jewelry. Many of my pieces are reminiscent of flowers, reflecting my deep knowledge and appreciation of the botanical world.The seedbead framework I use is an integral part of the clasp, color, composition + design. I enjoy the challenge of making wearable, yet exciting pieces out of a seemingly fragile material.
