Island Rain

Island Rain

Wendy Pierson began creating jewellery in 1990, but started working with glass 11 years later, enamored with its endless possibilities and quiet allure. For Wendy, it has become the perfect medium; unpredictable and always challenging, giving her the freedom to create new and ever changing pieces. Wendy first studied lamp working on the big island of Hawai'i. A few months later, and after more than 10 years of living overseas and in Hawai'i, Wendy Pierson packed up her kids, cats, dog, torch and kiln, and moved to Sidney, Vancouver Island, Canada.

Artist's Statement

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 colors, 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.
