"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
Born from my love of handmade, unique items, Gypsy Gem Works is a home based business tucked away in the historic Civil War battlegrounds of Fredericksburg, VA.
I’ve always been drawn to unusual pieces of jewelry and the way light streams through stained glass. What started as a hobby led to selling pieces at craft shows, and then blossomed into a business of creating and selling items and custom pieces for local shops and customers.
In addition to jewelry and glass crafting, I also make soap and practice/teach yoga. I love the way natural, hand made soap feels, and I love that I’m using only the purest, most natural ingredients on my skin. My jewelry and glass designs are often inspired by nature and yogic symbols. My items are sold at various places around town, and my yoga classes are offered locally, as well. Join me some time… check my schedule for upcoming jewelry, stained glass, yoga and soap making classes.
