My name is Kerstin, but about everybody calls me Kim.
I was born and raised in Germany and studied History of Arts at the University in Berlin. My other fields of interest, in an academic sense, are Ethnology, Anthropology and lately, Physics (although, regrettably, I did not pay much attention to it in High school and therefore am missing about all of the basics).
My two great passions are animals and glass. As you can see, this blog is saturated with glass, so don’t worry, you will be bombed with it a little later on again. But first, let me get to the animals.
I am, by profession, a licensed veterinary nurse. But I am going back to school for Diagnostic Ultrasound.
I am host to two ferrets and one dog. My dog Max is getting old and is accumulating more and more diseases, syndromes and conditions, so my days are scheduled mostly around him (aside from the fact that he is a “velcro dog” and permanently attached to me anyways). My two weasels are called Wally and Boris and, naturally, are challenging me every day with new mischief.
I have always had some kind of crafty hobby but when I tried out stained glass a number of years back, I was hooked. Stained glass led to glass painting, then mosaics, then fused glass. Today, I am concentrating on fused glass jewelry and cabinet knobs and pulls.
The following picture are from before I found my current style of fused glass jewelry. As you can see, you may call it my brown phase =)
