Beach glass...for eighteen years I would walk the shore of Lake Erie, head down, scanning endlessly for small, shining chips of happiness. How can I describe the joy upon finding a rare color...is that a red? Oh, maybe it's plastic...no, it's glass, hooray! But the glass wasn't for me. It was for my mother, Dolores Jane Toporowski Kreger, an extraordinary woman who chose to adopt me in the early 1970's. This blog will be devoted to our family business of creating art, especially the beach glass jewelry she inspires with every piece of her collection we see.
I love you, Mom. I miss you.
