We all know and love this Jet of the Day as EMO!
Her given name is Kerri Lynn and she is the creative mind and hands behind Emotional Oasis on Etsy.com. The JETs have more than 100 members and the success of this team is greatly due to Emo's care and hard work. She is our Captain! I speak on behalf of our team when I say, Emo, you are so important to us for many reasons. Creative expertise aside; your dedication to the team, hard work, smarts, and humor do not go unappreciated!

To create the art you see in Emotional Oasis, glass is fused and annealed by slowly bringing it to 1550 degrees and then cooling it in a controlled kiln. This ensures strength & durability.

The process goes beyond the melting of different colors and layers of glass together into one piece. Emo adds her hallmark artistic touch by adding other elements, such as fusible paint, metal shavings, iron powder, gold leafing, and decals to further transforms the glass.
Here, Emo created the illusion of a framed pendant. This one of a kind design reminds me of one of Emo's favorite quotes:
"Experimentation, not adaptation, feeds the soul of a true artist."
Emotional Oasis is one of the few JET shops that truly caters to men as well as women. The glass cufflinks are a perfect gift for the man who is impossible to buy for. And Emo's glass accented flasks and money clips are lovely and personal gift ideas.
I am crazy about Emo's home decor and the organic feel of the many colors and textures in the hand crafted glass dishes and bowls she makes. I hope she expands this line!

A true, multi-talented artistan, Emo uses well honed wire wrapping skill to perfectly frame and accent many of her nature inspired handmade fused glass pendant necklaces
as well as some of Mother Nature's gemstone creations.

If you are awed by the natural world around you, you will feel equal emotion at Emotional Oasis. Each of the more than 300 (never duplicated) pieces of glasswork will affect you, and you will have a difficult time narrowing down your choices. Mother's day is around the corner. I suggest a few pieces for Mom, like this set, for example:
|Enchanted Garden Bracelet|
|Graffiti Girl Glass Pendant|
|Hypnotic Glass Stud Earrings|
and do not forget gorgeous a glass tart dish for you.
|As for the dish itself, it was made by fusing layers of art glass together into a tile form. Once the tile was fused, it was then draped over a mold & refired (kiln annealed) to ensure strength & durability.|
