Glass beauty

I am not usually overly wild about everything glass, (maybe that comes from my childhood trauma of breaking a snowglobe in a "dimestore")... but I am totally taken with this garland of glass by Pamela Angus from Isere, France. I found her at her Etsy shop yesterday and I asked her if I could post about her work. There are so many places that this garland would work - my favorite would be a shelf in a well lit room sending sparkling reflections all around.
She says her influence for this piece is pre-Raphaelite romance, and I can see that clearly. If you are in her area this spring you could drop into her new studio/gallery in the Alps! Follow that development at her blog right here.

Thanks for the link to Pamela Angus. Her work is if I could only hop over to France for a visit ;)

I'm with you on glass. It's not at the top of my list of loved materials. But these are so delightful.

Hope you are feeling better.
