Tahoe Fire Glass by Molly B

This delicate art form requires meticulous skills and talent due to the fragility of the precious materials used in the settings.

Looks like Molly is a pro!

It was 30 years ago when Molly fell in love with fused glass and wire wrapping and Tahoe Fire Glass was born in her art studio in South Lake Tahoe.

Molly’s distinctive style and innate talent lies in her ability to balance the glass and intricate wire wrapping to showcase the beauty of the fused glass piece without overpowering it, creating a total work of art.

She starts with a piece of dichroic glass, then layers it with various colored glass (up to 8 layers in some pieces) to achieve the design she is seeking. Many of her pieces are adorned with swarovski crystals like the Dichroic glass pendant pictured here that also includes pink and blue glass. Finally, each piece is wire wrapped in sterling silver or 14 karat gold-filled wire.

Molly is also well known for her intricate wire wrapping designs using sterling silver or 14 karat gold-filled wire. that can be performed on most precious stones (as long as they are not too soft) turning them into wearable jewelry.

Molly and her husband Mike attend several shows throughout the year, in Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada Foothills.

  3. Dear Molly,

    Do you ever teach wire wrapping? I always make necklaces for my aunts on the east coast for Christmas and would love to try something different for them. If you don’t teach can you recommend someone that might.

    Thank you
