The Birth of Glass on a Wire
At the end of 2013 I came to a point in my life where I could see my path diverge in front of me. It was then evident, due to a medical condition the pain coursing through my body was here to stay. This meant the type of work I did was no longer a possibility so I gave up my position at the retirement home where I was employed. Parting ways was difficult for me; I enjoyed my work very much.
In an attempt to keep my mind off the pain and the fact I was now unemployed, I made jewelry. Designing jewelry had been a hobby of mine for many years. I liked to give it as gifts. At that time I had a lot of pain, which meant I was making a lot of jewelry. I turned ugly pain into pretty pieces of art. The Harriston Farmers’ Market was starting up soon and in an effort to feel like I was working again I decided to rent a table for the summer. It was great exposure, and living in a very supportive community, I had a lot of fun. People got to know me, what I did, and were interested in what I provided. Now I was excited, and the entrepreneur fire was lit. It was time to turn my hobby into an actual business.
Fast forward to today: Glass on a Wire is the name of my business. I have a studio where I offer one of a kind jewelry, custom orders, re purposing of your old jewelry, and small repairs.
I look forward to offering jewelry workshops, as well as a “make and take” area where you can construct your own piece of art while I provide tools, supplies and patterns.
Glass on a Wire is committed to providing quality workmanship.
Workmanship that is elegant with unique yet classic looks, while providing excellent, thoughtful customer service.
