Holiday Shopping Opportunities for Unique Gifts

The holiday season will be here before we know it! Rather than waiting until the last minute to find perfect presents for loved ones, take advantage of local craft shows in Virginia, bazaars and holiday markets to find unique and meaningful gifts that will perfectly match the recipients.

Virginia jewelry artist Chrisell Vasiliou, owner of Forever Fusions, participates in these types of events to showcase her one-of-a-kind dichroic glass jewelry. Unique, colorful pendants, bracelets and earrings are available for purchase at the events, but often visitors to her booths are inspired by the jewelry at the show and they commission Chrisell to craft a distinctive piece to express their love for a special person or pet:

  • Memorial pendants lovingly and respectfully infused with cremated remains
  • Mother’s pendants featuring silhouettes of mother and child
  • Metal cuff jewelry made of brass, pewter and .999 fine silver plating elements with fused glass cabochon
  • Funky Fusions designs of color-shifting dichroic glass and conversation-sparking designs

Unique Way to Remember Your Beloved Pet

Pet Memorial Pendant


Pets. They have a way of working their way into our hearts and truly becoming part of the family. They offer unconditional love and companionship and they’ve been shown to actually provide health benefits for humans.

It’s only logical that when we lose a pet due to illness, natural disaster or other tragedy, the effects can be quite devastating for the family left behind. Now there is a way to create a powerful connection to the memory of your pet – one that can be kept with you every day: memorial pendants.

Memorial jewelry for pets is offered by Forever Fusions, a jewelry design studio based in Virginia. Artist Chrisell Vasiliou takes a small amount of cremated remains of your pet and infuses them into dichroic glass pendants that can be worn close to your heart. The glass fusion process she uses results in one-of-a-kind, color-changing or image-designed jewelry that is as unique as your beloved pet. Chrisell will work with you to come up with a design concept that combines the personality of your pet and your own style.

Because Forever Fusions is a small studio, nothing is mass-produced; every piece is crafted with the utmost dignity and respect. You can choose to keep the design of your pendant silent – no one needs to know how the jewelry was crafted. What your friends and family will see is a beautiful piece of jewelry that may very well become your signature piece.

A Sentimental Way to Show Support for Hurricane Victims

Natural disasters, like the recent hurricanes our coastal lines have experienced, strip away personal possessions to an unfathomable degree, leaving a hollow feeling. Beyond homes, cars and everyday essential items, our loved ones can also lose sentimental treasures. Those of us who have never been in this position can only imagine the sense of loss and despair that comes in the weeks, months and years following such a tragedy. In fact, it can be hard to know how to respond – how to help – loved ones in these situations. Sometimes just lending a sympathetic ear is enough, but sometimes it might help to send a tangible reminder of your support.

Virginia jewelry artist, Chrisell Vasiliou, creates signature jewelry pieces that could be a perfect way to send a loved one a symbol of:

  • Perseverance
  • Strength
  • Hope
  • Resolve
  • Love

In her Forever Fusions studio, Chrisell molds layers of dichroic glass into pendants, bracelets and earrings that feature swirling, changing colors. Every piece is truly unique; each one is hand made using a glass fusion process to create different colors, textures and designs.

Of course, a simple piece of jewelry cannot make everything right again. However, this symbol of your support could actually become a new family heirloom for your loved one…a reminder that their spirit lifted them from the tragedy and gave them strength to rebuild their lives.

Visit Forever Fusions at to browse the different types of jewelry that can be fashioned for your loved ones. If you would like to order a unique piece to send to a hurricane victim, mention this during your communications with Chrisell and she will take 10% off your order.

The Perfect Graduation Gift for Girls

High school and college graduations are a time of endings and new beginnings filled with bittersweet excitement, uncertainty, stress and maybe a little fear and anxiety.

Funky Fusions Butterfly Pendant

Butterfly Pendant : Approx. 1” square : pink iridized fused glass : 18” silver plate necklace $35.00

If you have been invited to share in the graduation of a young lady, you may be searching for an appropriate gift with meaning – something that she can take into the next stage of her life to show that you support her in her journey. Cash, luggage, picture frames…these are all nice gifts but they may not project the feelings or inspiration you wish to convey to her.

Virginia jewelry designer Chrisell Vasiliou has a unique graduation gift idea that can meet these requirements: one-of-a-kind necklace pendants.

Using a process called glass fusion, Chrisell forms dichroic glass into pendants that reflect multiple hues of color depending on lighting and the angle from which the piece is viewed. An eye-catching design can also be incorporated onto the piece to reflect the graduate’s interests or a symbol that has a special meaning for her.

The graduate is about to embark on a new adventure in her life; each time she wears the pendant and experiences the beautiful shifting colors, she can be reminded of the achievements she has accomplished so far and look forward to the path ahead. Her unique pendant can also serve as a reminder of your encouragement.

Even if graduation day has already passed it’s never too late to give a graduation pendant. Contact artist Chrisell Vasiliou at

Make a Statement with a Signature Jewelry Piece

You may know certain celebrities, neighbors, co-workers, friends or family that always wear a signature necklace, ring, earrings or bracelet, regardless of the occasion. It’s the one piece that becomes synonymous with that person – something you expect to see day after day.

Aside from wedding rings, having a unique signature piece of jewelry can define who you are. It can show that you are not afraid to rock your own personal style. It can signify a feeling of control and balance in your life. It can become a conversation piece. Or it can just tell the world that you love a particular piece of jewelry.

The more unique the jewelry piece is, the more meaningful it will become.

In 2014 Virginia jewelry artist Chrisell Vasiliou realized that she could use the process of glass fusion to fashion one-of-a-kind pendants – jewelry that could become signature pieces for others to enjoy. Using layers of super thin, colorful glass, combined with metals, oxides or silica, Chrisell handcrafts amazing color-shifting works of art that can complement almost any outfit.

Her memorial pendant creations are especially meaningful for people who have lost a loved one – even a beloved pet. By incorporating a loved one’s ashes into the glass fusion process, the piece becomes 100% unique for the wearer. Many people who have ordered the memorial pendants express gratitude that they can always carry that strong connection with the deceased anywhere they go in life. A memorial pendant is quite often a signature piece that is worn daily to keep loved ones close to the heart.
