LOVE FAMILY

In 2005, at the age of 13 I began making fused glass pendants to give to my close friends as gifts. I used my grandmother’s kiln to make my first pieces, and instantly fell in love with the process of working with glass. All I wanted to do was to continue making things to give to others. I began to create more gifts for my classmates who admired them, and my family members. My business continued to grow, and I was finally able to get my hands on a kiln of my own so that I could work on jewelry at home. I wanted to continue to reach more people, so with the love and support of my family, I got a business license and decided to start selling my work at farmers markets and bazaars. From there I was able to connect and hear the precious and emotional stories of so many people. Whether my jewelry is a gift for a significant other, a vacation souvenir, get well soon token, or a confidence boost from a best friend, it has been sent to places around the world. My artwork has been able to take on so many forms and to be a part of many lives. This business has been a blessing to me, and has allowed me to witness so much kindness and compassion that people have for each other. My business is called MIRROR because after I make these pieces, they are no longer about me. They take on a new life, becoming a reflection of you, and going with you on a journey that only you know. What is most satisfying to me is when my art can bring somebody joy, and become a part of your story. Thank you all so much for being you, XOXO Ayla Leisure
