Silver Jewelry Crafting
My name is Celeste Miller and I teach classes in silver jewelry making (Chain Maille and Precious Metal Clay) as well as Stained Glass, Fused Glass, Stained Glass Mosaics and Silk Scarf Painting. Most of my classes are in the Richmond, Virginia area but I do teach a few classes at Bay School Arts Center in Mathews, Virginia. I also do "home party classes" and pieces on commission.
After nearly 25 years in “Corporate America”, I retired to pursue my creative side. My chemical engineering background and love for “process” attracted me to stained glass, glass mosaics, and fused glass. My glass education and experience is a result of working for a local stained glass studio for six years. I love to combine dichroic fused glass with Precious Metal Clay to create unique pieces that always receive compliments.

Olivia named her business by combining her middle name and her sister’s first name. This was as a tribute to her sister who she lost to cancer 8 years ago. She began making jewelry when a friend showed her how to create a small bracelet and it quickly became an obsession.
She enjoys the therapy and creative outlet it affords. Grace Llewellyn Designs can be seen at 2nd Sundays on Prince George Street in Williamsburg, VA each month as well as shows in and around the area.

The lamp shade trade started with the purchase of a bottle of Happy Vodka - I couldn't throw that Smiley Face in the recycle bin, my Dad suggested I make a lamp shade for it.........I haven't stopped looking for fun and interesting bottles since!
