Nancy Wasserman / Glitzy Glass
Hometown: Washington, DC
Nancy Wasserman was a participating artist at the very first Sugarloaf Crafts Festival in 1975. She remember “The Association” played live music during the show.
Then she moved to Hawaii and stayed there for 30 years. When she returned to the East Coast, a friend taught her how to work with glass and soon after, Nancy returned to Sugarloaf.
She is most known for her nail files which are made from Swarovski crystal accented with dichroic glass. The crystal creates extremely smooth nails. These files are especially helpful for diabetics, chemo patients and infants but also for anyone with sensitive skin. The crystal files last indefinitely so you might never need to buy a nail file again!
Nancy also makes jewelry and Judaica items. Her designs are inspired by everything from Hawaii’s flowing lava to her grandmother’s lace patterns.
She lives in the Washington DC area so she can see her grandchildren often.
