Glass Pendant by Holly Cruise
Holly Cruise started working with glass in 1995 as an apprentice at UrbanGlass: The New York Experimental Glass Workshop. While there, she worked with many reputable artists as an artist's assistant and teaching assistant, and took part in the work study program.

In 1997 Holly moved on to New Orleans, Louisiana, where she worked in a production glassblowing studio. Holly settled down in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1999. From 2000-2004, she worked for New-Small & Sterling Studio Glass on Granville Island. At the same time, she began to pursue flameworking, making beautiful glass jewelry out of her studio at the Glass Onion.

Holly has had a successful career as a graphic designer, and is currently working on a new product line of prints, cards, jewelry & clothing incorporating her finely drawn illustrations. Holly works from her home in Vancouver when she is not chasing after her most amazing creations, her two little boys, Dexter & Spike.
