A little about the Artist
Eileen lives along the shoreline of Connecticut where she enjoys combing the beaches in search of sea glass. She inherited a love of crafts and rockhounding from her parents. Hunting for earth's treasures and then creating with them is her passion. She lives with her husband of 32 years and enjoys time with her three sons.
About their Business
Odonata is the scientific name for Dragonflies. They represent the ability to adapt to life's challenges. While raising Autistic twins she found that she needed a therapeutic outlet. She began selling her handmade jewelry in 2004. The seaglass collections grew in popularity and thus Odonata Seaglass was born. With the exception of the photographs printed on gift items, Eileen creates every piece by hand. Her glass comes from worldwide collectors. She allows the size, shape, and color of the glass to dictate her designs. There is no cutting, reshaping, or tumbling in her creative process. Her giftware is created with sea glass or printed with her own seaglass photographs.
