Renata Crowe combines torchworked and cast glass with silver to create custom jewelry. Best known as a milliner, she has successfully made the transition from working with felt, straw and textiles to glass and metal. Creating a harmonious balance between glass and metal is the focus of her work and symbolizes the patience and balance of the natural world. In December 2006, Renata was one of two artists to participate in the first ever glass jewelry show at the renowned Vetri International Glass in Seattle, where her work explored the theme of society and urban violence.
