TRACIE MCBRIDE ARTS - JEWELRY
Boise, ID - Years in BAM Art in the Park: 5
I began making Kiln fired dichroic glass to make tiles to use in my glass mosaics. Finding how striking and sparkly the dichroic glass tiles were, I started to make necklaces. I extended that into earrings then to bracelets. I use dichroic glass exclusively for my jewelry. To shape my pieces, I cut, grind and polish each one whether for a teardrop pendant or round dots for a bracelet. My jewelry is an extension of my glass mosaic line of work for the last two years.
