Each of these Glass Stars is created with 6 individually hand cut glass triangles. They are glued together with a temporary glue and then fired to 1450 degrees in a small glass kiln. Each one is then cleaned and decorated with wire and beads, complete with a hook to hang in a window, dangle from a light fixture, or hung on a Christmas tree. They are wonderful for Hanukkah and Christmas decorating. I create many of these stars in various sizes and colors. Find them at and

Thank you all for being patient while I continue to move my shop to Zibbet. 
As of today, there are 50 items on Zibbet. I am posting a few each day.
I am using valuable time to make these changes which has limited my time to create and blog. I 
have been  disappointed and saddened by the recent changes in ETSY guidelines. These changes have prompted me to move my shop to ZIBBET.  I love to keep my hands busy all the time and love to create handmade items! I am also a full-time art teacher, so my creative efforts are limited to evenings and weekends. Because of this, I want to use my time to design and make creations that are special.  I am committed to selling truly HANDmade items, that are created by me. Zibbet has made a commitment to offering true handmade in it's 'handmade' category.

Etsy has decided to include manufactured items to it's site (while still calling them handmade) which seriously affect search results for the shops that are truly handmade. 
There has been a mass exodus from ETSY because of dissatisfaction with these new guidelines.

*I am in the process of adding new items daily as I transition from Etsy to ZIBBET.
*I am joining ZIBBET because of it's commitment to offering truly 'HANDmade' items.

My new Zibbet shop -  - I have many items already listed here but I also still have many items listed on Etsy. Until, I have everything moved over, you can also visit my shop on Etsy -  
Have a Creative Day!
Soon to come ... activities in the studio, with photo's,
