The Art of Wellness
University Park, TX. USA
I am a self-employed promoter and networker for the development of
independent spirit and creative expression. I run 8 websites
addressing this purpose in the arenas of alternative health and
intuitive development. I am also a photographer and know quite a few
jewelers and have a fine collection of artisan-created one-of-a-kind
pieces. It is my especial pleasure to find and share unique jewelry
and share them with my associates, and sometimes I promote others
pro bono basis simply because they are excellent and deserve it. I
am a fan of Sergio Bustamante of Mexico, Richard Batky of Dallas
Texas USA, Rachel Pollack of Rhinebeck NY USA, Deborah Wishon and
Susannah Ravenswing of Winston Salem NC USA. I have been haunting
very upper end personal jewelers for 30 years, learning more and
more about European cultural and historical variations in jewelry
creation. Personally I am interested in learning more about fine
crafting, so that I may better appreciate the jeweler’s art, and
that is why I am here.

My husband and I started CJGlassworks in 2005 and specialize in
designing and making our own handmade lampwork beads, fused glass
jewelry and products, and lapidary silver, copper, and brass
designs. We are passionate about glass and have been rock and gold
hounds for many years.
Although mostly self-taught, we pride ourselves on the techniques we
have developed over the years and the quality of our products. In
our studio, we carefully craft each piece we design and take special
care in crafting it so that it will last you for years.
We sell our handcrafted beads and cabachons to many customers who
use them to make their own wonderful jewelry. We also sell our
handcrafted jewelry at craft shows, galleries, and online.

completed over the years.
