Rhonda McConnell is co-founder/artist of AKS. Her background is interior design and art. However, she is self taught in the art of fired glass enameling. Rhonda's passion is creating wall crosses from exotic and rustic woods and enamel. "I really enjoy using transparent enamels. It's fun to watch the way the enamel changes and plays on the copper after being fired." She also enjoys making necklaces from natural gemstones and complementing them with enamel pendants and pieces. All jewelry is handmade and original.
