Welcome to Janie Yakovlevitch Designs

I am internally driven to create, and recreate, nests. Be they indoors or out, glass allows me to replicate these areas of comfort and beauty, influenced by Nature's endless palette.

Mosaic Arts

I love creating warm, inviting spaces indoors, that reflect the grace and soothing beauty of Nature.  I am especially fond of transforming a functional piece, such as a backsplash,  into a functional piece of art.  Whether it be a table, a light fixture, a wall decoration, or backsplash, I see potential for bringing a bit of Nature’s wonders of color, movement, and play, indoors.

Fusing

Fusing plays on my knowledge of flame working, providing a natural segway, based on my understanding of the way the metals in the glass affect color and reaction, and the behavior of molten glass, allowing me to predict an outcome. The fusing provides an opportunity to create larger pieces for the home, or to serve as inclusions in my mosaics.
