Roberta & Bill Manly
We make handcrafted jewelry with flameworked and fused glass, enamel, silver, copper, and semi-precious stones. Flameworked glass is a medium increasingly appearing in our work. We value the gorgeous color palate of opaque, transparent and reactive glass available today, as well as its decorative and sculptural possibilities. The avenues of self-expression possible melting glass at the torch, or in a kiln, and combining it with the malleable properties of metal, are seemingly endless. We also have some fun with bottle glass, and appreciate its eco-friendly aspects and simple beauty.
