Why Dutch Delft Blue?
The inspiration behind the colors
Blue has always been one of my favorite colors. The blue of the sky, the oceans, and nature’s bounty, but this particular blue, for my lampwork glass cabochon settings, has much more significance. I am calling it “Dutch Delft Blue”!
You see, my parents met during WW2 on a farm in the Netherlands. They fell in love and were married. Shortly after, they immigrated to the US and became American citizens. But their Dutch roots always remained.
The blue of the cabochons in this jewelry collection are reminiscent of the Dutch Delft Blue, that was always around my house when growing up.
When I saw this glass, I just had to go for it’s Dutch Delft Blue beauty, in remembrance of them.
