Island Rain

Island Rain

Wendy Pierson of Island Rain Studios, began creating jewellery in 1990, but it would be 11 years before she discovered glass. For her it has become the perfect medium, unpredictable and always challenging.She first studied lamp working on the Big Island of Hawaii before packing up her kids, cats, dog, torch and kiln and moving to Sidney on Vancouver Island.

"I have often been asked whether I consider myself a glass artist or a jeweler. I took some time to think about it, and soon it was very clear that both were equally important aspects of my work. In the jewellery I create, I often think the merit of the glass shows through, with beads that are intricate and ornate. At other times the design of the piece takes over, using simpler beads but still achieving jewellery that is full of interesting details thoughtfully composed.

Influences of the tropics and Southeast Asia can be seen in my work, remembering the colours, textures and uniqueness of other cultures and places. Now, as I continue to make my home on Canada's west coast, I am able to add a new dimension to my life and art.

At the end of the day, my wish is always to create unique pieces of jewellery wanting the perfect balance between glass and wearable art." -Wendy Pierson
