Though I focus most of my creative work on making beautiful glass for customers to display proudly in their homes and on their person, I also like to have some fun making more light-hearted pieces as well.

My main pieces o’ whimsy are these sweet animal brooches. I started with the dogs back in 2004 and then realized I couldn’t leave the cat lovers out of the Haminal loop, and then I learned to knit, so had to make sheep…and finally I began keeping chickens so had to have some plucky clucks as well.

My hubby named them…see we are HAMS and they’re animals, so they’re HAManimals or HAMinals.
