White Tideline Designs ~
Welcome to White Tideline Designs. Grab a warm cup of tea, a glass of cabernet or some 'wicked good' spiced-cider and sit down for a wander ... taking in the stories & beauty of handcrafted artisan glasswork, hand-cast sterling findings & accents along with earthly stones & luminous gems which, combined together, make colorful, lyrical & edgy sculptural jewelry design. Every design here has a name and a story. When the muse hits, I sit down to create one-of-a-kind pieces which turn into compositions & sculpture of color, shape & flights of fancy. Often former travels serve as my muse ~ the cobbled streets of Paris' Montmartre, the narrow medieval roads of Siena, San Gimignano & Volterra. Or the brave, open expanse of Norwegian tundra known as Finnmarksvidda; the mysterious Incan & Mayan ruins, jungles and rivers, dense with awe & intrigue or the quiet majesty of Antarctica ~ these places & more are a force behind my designs. Simple watercolors by my children or shapes, textures & colors of our garden throughout the seasons ... all serve as my endless & abundant muse.
My design signature, however, is the extraordinary hand-wrought glass beads which are painstakingly handcrafted using a very hot torch & rods of colorful glass by talented artists, both here and abroad. Known as 'lampwork,' each bead is its own work of art - radiant glass frozen in a landscape of fine, interesting lines, caverns & tangles of beautiful, clean color. Annealed by kiln, these beads are difficult to break and make for an enduring piece of jewelry. Much of my work incorporates some of earth's most beautiful stones and gems which are added to a design along with handsome, rogue sterling silver components from precious metal artists. My work often includes high-grade, semi-precious
gemstones which lend earthiness & beauty when cut &
faceted in just the right way. The combination of studio glass beads, stone, gems & sterling silver can be compelling, creating an enduring piece of glass & stone art.
Revel in the joyous distraction of studio glass, stone & bright silver and the way light is caught in a thousand colors as you marvel at your own lustrous moments of being alive!
