We have changed our store name on etsy to NizaHandbags. They have taken off quiet well. I have been told our bags ruin women for other bags. We offer them in recycled wool, recycled denim, recycled linen and also in new fabrics. Each bag is picked apart in the description as to its origin. Our bags are very organizational. They always have pockets on the front for your most important things, like cell phone, garage remote, glasses. And they have pockets on the inside, and most come with a mounted key ring and clip so that your keys are easy to get at, not in the junk in the bottom of the bag. Check out our bridal handbags for yourself or to give as shower or pre-wedding gifts. We have bags for all seasons and reasons.

Liliana’s artistic technique emphasizes focused improvisation and a willingness to treat glass as a partner in her process. “Making glass beads is like choreography to me. I conceptualize a bead, and in its creation the glass, the colors, gravity, the flame—just like dancers—build on my vision with their own natural interpretations. I enjoy the surprise.” The glass colors she engages range from the bold and outspoken to the quiet and transcendental. She varies surfaces from smooth and glossy to textured, rich in relief and dynamism. These too encapsulate metaphors of experience, pointing to the shifting realities of day to day human existence.
Originally from Moldova in Eastern Europe, Liliana Cirstea Glenn has lived in Russia, Romania, Alaska, and Iowa. She resides in BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, where she creates contemporary glass art in her home studio.
