Etta Kostick

Etta Kostick

Etta is compelled by glass in its many different forms and applications. She grew up in the woods and by the seashore in Massachusetts, in a family of glassblowers. After moving to Chicago in 2007 she started experimenting with stained glass, attracted to the many colors, textures, and its relationship to light.

Over the years, Etta's fascination with glass has grown and has lead her to pursue and experiment with different methods of manipulating glass. br>Etta's love of jewelry was initially inspired by tribal jewelry and adornments she had collected from South Asia. Strong shapes and the feeling of empowerment they give to the wearer are elements that inspire her. Her jewelry incorporates bold designs as well as more delicate and organic elements that emulates things she sees in nature. Etta is constantly exploring and developing new visions for her work in glass and jewelry.

Take a studio tour to see where Etta creates her beautiful glass jewelry!

      This was a gift: one earring arrived broken. Very disappointed to learn after spending considerable amount of time in trying to find a thoughtful gift.

        I bought these beautiful earrings as a b-day prezzie for a dear friend. They are light and unique. She loved them.

        Wish that they would have came with backs though.

                    I have to add the extra small backs for the earrings because of lost other earrings with similar styling without the small backs.

                      Comments about SHATTERED GLASS EARRINGS:

                      These earrings are very lightweight and beautiful. I stopped wearing anything other than stud earrings a few years ago because I got tired of earrings that were too heavy or got caught in my long hair. These earrings are beautiful and lightweight (no pulling on my ear OR my hair!). I've gotten compliments on them every time I've worn them.

                      The only downside is that the earrings do not come with backs to them, but that is easily remedied by taking a pair of rubber backs off of another pair of earrings in my jewelry box. They are beautiful and I am glad I purchased them.

                          We know we love Etta Kostick's new Shattered Glass Earrings, but we're not sure which set we like best. What do you think?

                          Very pretty and I would think that each pair would be unique. My mom would love these as she collects unusual earrings.

                          I Really love the uniqueness of these earrings. I think the larger blue ones are the bomb diggity! The blues are beautiful, I like the way the colors get progressively darker and, I love how the glass bits look like water droplets .

                          Larger one is lovely, with the larger proportion of smaller glass bits on top, but please consider that same design and color in smaller size, for us shorter people.
