Vibrant. Beautiful. Distinctive. These are three words that come to mind when I look at photographs of jewelry from Glass Addictions. Jennifer Cameron, the owner of Glass Addictions is an Indiana Artisan who creates handmade jewelry that makes the perfect souvenir for friends or relatives from the Hoosier State.
If you’re like me and love traveling, you probably love finding the local favorites too. You also probably discovering finding unique shops and interesting people. If you are lucky enough to meet an Indiana Artisan, I’m sure it will be an experience you’ll remember.
Indiana Artisans are Hoosiers juried into the Indiana Artisan program who using Indiana raw products to create works of art and value-added foods. Jennifer has a passion for jewelry making and says, “It’s too much fun to be considered a business.” Her hobby has turned into a career that she takes very seriously because Jennifer knows that Indiana Artisans represent high-quality work as well as the state of Indiana.
Glass Addictions is a jewelry company that specializes in making lampwork beads in many bold colors. Jennifer also sells earrings and necklaces on Etsy.com. She sells about half of the jewelry she creates and donates half to Courage, an organization that gives children with serious illnesses colorful beads to represent milestones in their treatment.
