CONTEST IS OVER! CONGRATS TO Monique Rizzo, COMMENT #35!!!
Elegant, affordable jewelry is a weakness of mine. I don’t like to overdo it, but I do like nice earrings or a dainty necklace or bracelet to accent my outfits when I go out. They have to be quality made.
Jenny Gaynor Glass has some really pretty, elegant and affordable jewelry. Jenny makes wonderful, beautiful glass jewelry! Unique and very neat looking. When I browsed her website, I instantly loved the look and colors of her jewelry. She also makes some gorgeous vases! Wow!
A Bit About Jenny Gaynor Glass (Taken off of her site):
Jenny Gaynor, a 33 year old Los Angeles based artist known for her airy, almost ethereal glass creations seeks to provide meaning to the things we touch everyday, thus creating handmade pieces of jewelry and art. Using her exceptional skills deriving from years of training under world-reknown glass artists in Murano, Italy, Gaynor’s vision to defeat redundancy has made her succeed in creating something that is truly unique.
Gaynor began working with glass in 1999 at Tulane University in New Orleans and got her Masters in Art Therapy at Southern Illinois University . She broadened her skills from glassblowing to lampworking and with an insatiable desire to improve her proficiency Gaynor spent several summers in Murano, Italy studying with the masters at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass and at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, New York.
In 2003 Jenny used her art therapy background to develop a children’s program while in Murano which is still part of the annual curriculum at the Abate Zanetti School of Glass today. The marriage of her background as an art therapist and glass artist is beautifully portrayed in the use of symbolism in her art.
Gaynor’s past accomplishments also include production glass blowing for Nuance Glass Studio in New Orleans, LA and Third Degree Glass Factory in St. Louis, MO where she also spent two years teaching glassblowing and lampworking.
Gaynor’s vision is conveyed through the transparent quality of the glass medium itself. She fabricates all the glass components on her torch using the traditional Muranese lampworking technique and combines them with sparkling semi-precious gemstones. Whether in her lampwork jewelry or newly introduced custom photo transfer vases her final products are a whimsical, charming, truly one of a kind piece of art.
All pieces are created by hand in Jenny’s studio in Los Angeles, California.
