Guest Blog: Indie is the new Green by Jessica Gonacha – Reclaimed Glass Jewelry

by guest contributor Jessica Gonacha

The idea crossed my mind the other day that I would like to learn how to make stained glass jewelry. Now, being an eco-minded gal like I am, my next thought was, I wonder what kind of glass you can use to make this jewelry?
