What do you get when you tell a woman with 30 years of experience in glass work that she needs to stay off her feet for a while? Pouting? Nay! Tears of frustration? Of course not! Sometimes adversity leads to the greatest innovations. It certainly did in this case. Look what happens when idle hands are just itching to get creative. Behold: Glass Roots Treasures, a one-woman, Seattle-based jewelry company whose pieces are selling out faster than she can produce them.
Glass Roots Treasures isn't your run-of-the-mill jewelry company. Each piece is hand-crafted from carefully selected beads and hard to find stones. That makes each item one of a kind and a work of art all its own. Look for opal, Labradorite, and Chinese painted jasper. Word has it that the owner has even got a stash of the increasingly rare Ellensburg Blue agate.
