Fate or Coincidence? My Past Reached Out to Touch My Present.


While visiting my husband Larry's daughter, Gabrielle, in Colorado Springs, we fell in love with the beauty of the area. We took photos with the intention of making a stained glass mosaic. These were taken from the Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak.

While working at our booth, Jenn's Jems, located inside the now closed Pittsburgh Public Market, Larry and I met Bruce and Ruth, a couple from Colorado. They liked our work and we discussed creating a mosaic for a door in their home. A few months ago they contacted me ready for their special custom piece. They sent me a bunch of photos including these of Pikes Peak and a creek near their home.

The image they envisioned for their mosaic, was the same image Larry and I had talked about creating. Even the season was the same. I asked Ruth and Bruce what season they would like me to create, fully expecting them to say winter. After all, Colorado is known for skiing and snow. I was thrilled when they wanted summer, which was the season for the mosaic that Larry and I had planned to create.

Fate or coincidence?

I really enjoyed creating this custom stained-glass mosaic for Bruce and Ruth.
