Oh! Oh oh oh! Look at that!!

I got really excited and beyond fascinated the first time I saw work by this particular artist, and I'm thrilled and honored that they agreed to letting me feature them here on my blog.

This artist is a glass worker, and what I saw
is the focal pendant that you can see pictured here in my post. This lovely, softly etched and hand-formed borosilicate glass shell pendant is so beautiful that my mouth dropped open in amazement and I was left speechless.

For those that know me, speechless isn't something that happens all that often so you can understand my excitement.

I'm sure a part of my fascination is the fact that I have a great admiration for those that do lampwork arts and other types of glass work. The other part of my fascination? It has everything to do with my love for beaches and oceans.

Lori Lochner is a full-time studio glass artist, metalsmith and jewelry designer. This piece, like all of Lori's beautiful glass art pieces, is meticulously created and then kiln annealed.

Glasswork like that absolutely amazes me. Borosilicate glass is usually stunning, with it's incredible depth and layering, but that beautiful shell is just incredible.
