The students of City High have been walking the halls in unique glass jewelry since the end of first trimester. Some may wonder where one could get some glass jewelry of their own. Katherine Introna ‘20 and Azzurra Sartini-Rideout ‘20 have been making and selling glass jewelry at every art show this year.

“We were doing other projects in the class, like mosaics and stained glass,” Introna said. “We had a final project at the end of the tri, and asked if we could just make jewelry for our project and Mr. Close agreed, so that’s what we did.”

Sartini-Rideout and Introna have been making jewelry since first trimester in the class glass through City High’s art department. After their class ended, they found that they really enjoyed making jewelry and have continued to make jewelry ever since.

“I think we were mostly just really surprised on how cool our pieces were turning out, and just kept wanting make even better things,” Introna said.

Introna and Sartini-Rideout have already sold 77 items between both City High art shows, and have plans to expand their business as the year continues.

“We have talked about trying to get into the student art pavillion at the Summer of the Arts Festival, that’s a for sure plan,” Introna said. “Besides that, we want to try and put some of our stuff on Etsy and open up an online store there.”

Their unique jewelry will also be sold at the next City Art show, and they are looking into selling their art at White Rabbit, a store in downtown Iowa City.
