Rebecca McIntyre and Julie Spangler
Galena Glass Jewelry

Designers Rebecca and Julie start by creating kiln-fired fused glass cabochons.  No two pieces are exactly alike as each piece is a combination of 2-4 layers of different types of glass.  Dichroic, opalescent, clear, and art glass are layered in various combinations, fused in a kiln, expertly hand-shaped, and finally 3 or 4 firings to achieve the desired effect.  The designers wrap the finished glass cabochons in brass filigree and create vintage inspired jewelry by adding Czech glass beads, Swarovski crystals, charms and over 12 different styles of brass chain.  Designs are never duplicated so your purchase is a unique expression of your style!

Galena Glass Jewelry participates in numerous fine art festivals throughout the upper Midwest and their designs are sold in many boutiques and specialty gift stores in suburban Chicago, Iowa City, and Davenport, IA.
