I am obsessed with Jones Art Glass jewelry and home décor at Greymatter Glass Studio (2836 Vassar NE, 505.217.8535). For nearly a decade, lampworker/glassblower Rashan Omari Jones has handcrafted one-of-a-kind pieces that make incredible keepsakes and gifts. These are true conversation pieces. Whenever I wear my Jones Art Glass pendant, it garners comments.
Jones’ home décor collection includes decorative and functional wall hangings, paperweights and — my favorite — gorgeous perfume bottles. “Each one is a labor of love,” Jones said of the bottles in a recent interview. “I work almost exclusively with colors I see here in the desert Southwest: Sandia purples, mesa sandstone browns, rich bosque greens and vivid ‘Burque sky blues.”
Seksi side note: If you want to present the classiest gift at the bachelor/ette party, consider an item from Jones’ custom adult line, Aphrodite Glass, which, according to Jones, “Emphasizes pleasure and discretion in a city horribly lacking in both.”
