Happy Tuesday! Yesterday, I kicked off Dichroic Glass Week at Spiraling Forward. All week I’ll be launching new designs featuring glass created by my uncle, John Risberg, and wrapped by yours truly.

Do you know what dichroic glass is? According to Wikipedia,
Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metals or oxides which give the glass dichroic optical properties. The main characteristic of dichroic glass is that it has a particular transmitted color and a completely different reflected color, as certain wavelengthsof light either pass through or are reflected. This causes an array of color to be displayed. The colors shift depending on the angle of view. Dichroic glass is an example of thin-film optics.
Necklace: Blue dichronic glass wrapped with sterling-filled silver wire
Here’s a few of my listings. Watch SpiralingForward all week to see new designs!

We have been having some beautiful sunsets near my house lately. I bought the agates on the bottom two necklaces because they reminded me of sunsets. I had a lot of fun placing them in necklaces. And the copper bows are just fun. Bowties for girls. What’s better?

Did you ever notice that a treble clef has a spiral in the middle? I did when I was crafting the wire wrap for this necklace: it started out as a simple spiral that I was going to mirror, but sometimes the wire has other things in mind. I hope you enjoy it and the other items in today’s blog!

I love the symbolism of the spiral: infinite potential, interconnectiveness. If you google it, you will find all the other meanings for its symbolism. I love it. That’s why I changed the name of my store from my name to Spiraling Forward: it is a symbol of me moving forward, out of the corporate grind, the potential I believe for my family. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been fun. I love finding new ways to incorporate the spiral into my designs. It’s my “signature style” (thanks Kimberly Wilson for introducing me to the concept.) Here’s today’s highlights:
Necklace: Silver Wire Necklace, Spiral Wire Wrapped Necklace
Necklace: Wire wrapped stone, Silver Necklace, Silver Wire Necklace, Silver wire necklace with chain

I’ve been trying to make more coordinating pieces for my collection. Today I’ve got a matching necklace and bracelet. Also, the re-new highlights are from my stoney hearts collection. The one with the question mark in the center is my favorite, because even after seven years of marriage my heart still asks me questions. Hope you enjoy!

I spent a lot of time preparing to take Spiraling Forward into the “real” world last month at fEASTival. However, TDOT had other plans, beginning a huge road project that closes the easiest route to East Nashville every weekend for the whole summer. Thus, fEASTival has been rescheduled for September 8. Although disappointed, I am happy and agree with the organizers’ decision. I want fEASTival to have the best turnout possible, to give Spiraling Forward the best exposure possible.
The good news is, because I was stocking up for the festival, I now have a huge amount of stock to list in my store over the next few weeks/month. Here’s today’s offerings:
Necklace: Green glass necklace, Silver and green necklace, Summer necklace
Earrings: Green glass earrings, dangle earrings, drop earrings, summer earrings
