Ibelli’s Stained Glass at ArtWalk
ArtWalk is featuring a brand new jewelry line — Ibelli’s Stained Glass by Cathy Baron — in store this week.
Baron resides in Stokesdale and designs stained glass pieces not only as decorations for the home, but also as beautiful and unique forms of art to be worn, according to ArtWalk.
Baron’s jewelry designs are constructed using Tiffany stained glass techniques. Each piece is handcrafted, making it one of a kind. Baron said she is a firm believer in wasting nothing, so many of her designs are made by recycling the glass scraps of other studios and businesses.
Baron recently attended mosaic classes in Rome, learning the techniques used in old Roman mosaics and micromosaics, which involves hand-pulled thin glass threads set in Roman stucco.
According to ArtWalk, “The colorful glass jewelry of Ibelli’s is perfect for spring.” Folks can see for themselves on the main floor of ArtWalk, located at 611 W. King St. in downtown Boone.
