Look Into My Windows

Artisan Etta Kostick was raised by a family of glassblowers along the woodlands and seashores of Massachusetts. Influenced by these scenic environs, tribal imagery, and the stately architecture of her current hometown, Chicago, the designer utilizes stained glass (called copper foiling) and malleable soldered metal to create refined geometric pieces that possess a touch of fantasy.

These window pane-shaped earrings add a touch of subtle pizazz to your normal accessory routine. The artist uses classic techniques to make the frosty panes and she frames each miniature window with soldered metals. Each glass piece incorporates elegant simplicity with a lightweight, modern design. Handmade in Chicago.

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. Torch fired enameling, fusing, and incorporating intricate solder work are some of the techniques that Etta uses. She loves the transformative properties that occur when integrating these materials and techniques into her glass work.
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.
