about the studio

Yes, the studio name honors our Brown Dog, although she was more red than brown!

Brown Dog Studio began 15 years ago, on my kitchen counter, put away each day before picking up kids from school. From the beginning, I've made each glass charm by hand,...cutting glass, creating fun images, wrapping and soldering. I also created tiny silver charms...pieces like I wanted to wear...fun and unique.

As the studio and my interests grew, I found myself with a much larger inventory and better tools!

Although Brown Dog Studio has evolved, I still make each piece by hand in the studio. I continue to offer custom glass charms; photos, sports and schools, as well as charms representing hobbies and interests. In addition to glass, I work with silver, copper and bronze. There are many pieces ready for purchase and custom orders are available. Counting the 6 yearly studio Open Houses, I will participate in nearly 15 shows this year (+ trunk shows!)...art shows, craft fairs, antique markets.

Thank you to all who have trusted me to make fun/silly/meaningful jewelry for you or to be shared with those you love. YOU are why I continue to open my studio, cart my pretties to shows and constantly create!
