Bailey’s Wings – “Lifting you up through art and energy! I create re-purposed jewelry and art using frozen Charlotte dolls from Germany. They come to me with a little broken. I give Charlotte wings, an empowering word and perhaps a crown, to help her spirit soar! Like each of us, Charlotte is perfect, imperfections and all! My glass art is a groutless mosaic of translucent glass objects and stained glass on old windows or picture frames. Watch the magic happen as the light shines through! I will be offering a glass art sun catcher project at my table for 10 dollars.”
