The vibrant colors of these rich glass earrings appear to glow as if they were lit from inside.

Dolores Barrett was born in San Mateo, California in 1961 and pursued a career in music, specializing in orchestral and choral conducting. In 1999 she began a career as a fine porcelain artist and her meticulous canine portraiture soon appeared at prestigious kennel clubs across the United States. She was introduced to the medium of glass in the summer of 2002 while attending an international porcelain conference. The allure of art glass ignited a new passion in her work and she soon devoted her energies to the evolution of glass adornment in both fused and laminated forms.
Barrett’s unique style of glass jewelry regularly appears in various national and international exhibitions. She was a finalist in the 2004 International Emerge glass competition sponsored by Bullseye Glass Company, and she has been selected to participate in the Pilchuck Glass School’s annual exhibition and auction in Seattle since 2005. She was awarded a scholarship to attend the prestigious Pilchuck Glass School dug the summer of 2008. In 2009, she was selected as a featured artist in The Ventura Museum’s special exhibit of Telling Our Stories and participated in Wheaton Art’s GlassWeekend in 2011. Her work has appeared in a variety of national and international art books and magazines.

A keen eye for color and design, as well as atypical use of the glass medium, has garnered her representation by a growing number of galleries around the United States. She currently resides in California.
