They present a wide variety of creations from fun and fanciful kaleidoscopes to elegant blown glass or functional glass and pottery. The focus is on quality, function and value so everyone can find that special item for themselves or for a gift. Everything from artistic home décor in wood and metal to bath and body products, accessories and jewelry. Customers can enjoy shopping for that unique handmade jewelry piece of "art-to-wear" in sterling silver adorned with semi-precious gems, crystals, glass or pearls as well as fine leather or fabric handbags. Add color to your life with handpainted wine, martini or margarita glasses.
