Jannetje McManus from Mother's Whimsy born and raised in Monmouth Country has been working with glass since 1999.  In an effort to reduce and reuse everyday items, she tries to give new life to materials made by man and Mother Earth.  Currently, on display is a collection of glass items made by smashing bottles then fusing the shards together in various designs or refining the edges to create beautiful one of a kind jewelry.

Additionally, she combines beautifully colored sheets of art glass with scrap glass from previous projects to create votive holders, bowls, plates, and more.
