Introducing Ohana Glass Designs! The First of Today's Featured CityCraft Handmade Holiday Happy Hour Market Artists.

For the first of today’s special double CityCraft artist feature, I'm excited to introduce artist Natasha Vazquez Lee of Ohana Glass Designs.

Natasha is a most talented artist whose interests include creating fused glass pendants & other beaded jewelry pieces. Her mediums of choice include dichroic glass, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, Czech glass & lampwork beads. Her designs are nothing less than stunning & oh-so-romantic!

Natasha provides perfect imagery when describing her works. Take for example her depiction of the above pictured In the Secret Garden necklace, “A simple twist of the key, a gentle tug on the creaky old door, & a riot of colorful blooms explodes into view.”

For the Swirling Eddies earings pictured below, Natasha invites us to, “imagine a romantic boat ride in a serene pond, trailing your fingertips through the clear, cool water…”

Her craft truly is a splendor of visual poetry!

Natasha is a recent member of Etsy Pittsburgh & we are thrilled to welcome her to the team!

And so we welcome you to join us at Navarra on December 18th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm to shop local, shop handmade, and see Ohana Glass Designs along with many more talented artisans.
