Craft shows in Virginia and New Jersey are great events where you can find unique and meaningful gifts for your special loved ones. The creativity of local artisans shines through at these events – from pottery to clothing to jewelry and much more. It is a wonderful way to see the true colors of all these local crafts in person.
If you haven’t experienced the beauty of dichroic glass jewelry, you have the opportunity to see the result of this artistic process and meet Virginia jewelry artist Chrisell Vasiliou at some of these local craft shows. As owner of Forever Fusions, she crafts one-of-a-kind jewelry (colorful pendants, bracelets and earrings) that she showcases at the events:
- Memorial pendants lovingly and respectfully infused with cremated remains of loved ones or pets
- Mother’s pendants to celebrate the love 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
While she has a supply of pieces available for purchase at the events, some people commission her to create special pieces to express their feelings for a special person or pet. There is no better way to get an idea of the possible colors and shapes than by seeing her displays at the shows.
