In the Studio with Erica Rosenfeld

Her detailed, awe-inspiring glass jewelry goes on an amazing journey from the UrbanGlass studio facility to the UrbanGlass|ware storefront. It is such a pleasure to learn a bit more about her and her studio practice.  Where do you draw your inspirations from? I draw inspiration for my jewelry from mid-century modern
