Anni Gell Design
The joy of working with beautiful colours is the motivation for my glass jewellery.The collections I produce move with the seasons and colours around me and no two pieces are ever identical. Dichroic glass, with its fine metallic coatings, can sheen and reflect more than one colour at a time, picking up colours from what is being worn. However I find that mixed with transparent tints and prints it is at its best.
