Artist Spotlight: Dolores Barrett's Glass Jewelry Art Wear

Dolores Barrett is a San Mateo, California native who has had a long and outstanding career in fine arts. She started with a career in music, becoming a successful music teacher, pianist, and medieval music specialist. She discovered her talent for painting in 1999, leading her to become a prestigious fine porcelain artist. In 2002, Dolores came across dichroic glass while attending an art conference, and soon glass became her favorite material to work and experiment with. She now produces some of the most exquisite and unusual personal glass art wear the world has ever seen.

Round Glass and Gold Drop Earrings - Nebula Pixel Orb. The earrings' gold inner lining is a kiln-fired layer of 24k gold. It is the same type of gold that is found decorating fine china or dinnerware. Part of the Orb Series. See more of this art wear at Jewellog.
