Blue Wave Glass

*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Jennifer - I live in beautiful SW Florida with my husband, two daughters ages 3 & 5, and one crazy dog. They keep me very busy! We are originally from Baltimore, Maryland - Moved to Florida about 6 years ago to enjoy the weather and a quieter, more peaceful area. Family time is most important to me..We love going to the beach, swimming in our pool, and gardening together.


I have always loved to create, but have found Mosaics to be my passion. I love the idea of putting together a picture with so many tiny pieces...like a puzzle, they all come together to create something really special.


I have been making Mosaics for a while now...Mostly flower pots for myself, friends and family. I have always dreamed about selling items at craft shows, so I have decided to start something new with Blue Wave Glass. I am inspired always by nature...birds, butterflies, dragonflies, all kinds of flowers and plants. I think because of my daughters, I am now dreaming of mermaids and fairy mosaics too!


I want to make items that people will really use and display in there homes and gardens. I call it Functional Art - Flowers Pots, Candle Holders, Trivets, Birdhouses and Wall Hangings. I have so many more ideas!


I make each item like I was making a gift for my own friend or family. And I have a lot of fun making each and every one.


*How did you decide on your shop name?
My shop name tells you how much I love Florida's Gulf Coast...We have the most beautiful blue water!


*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
I do have a supply addition - Blue Stained Glass. For some reason all shades of blue just call out to me.




*If you could give a piece of advice to a new shop - what would it be?
I have only been on Etsy for a short time...but I think the best advice is to take great pictures, promote your shop where ever you can, and don't give up. I like to read the Forums, other sellers give the best suggestions, they are really very helpful.


*Are there other places on the net we can find you?
