Jacquelyn Koba - Rice

Welcome to Elements by Jacquelyn..I am a jack of all arts, if you will....
I create handmade lampwork, marbles, beads and custom jewelry. I also paint and work in a variety of mediums and am constantly exploring new crafts for anything that "lights my fire" "lights me up"...

I had always been an artist at heart. Even as a child, I preferred not to read my books but to stack them like cards to resemble a Barbie castle. Every sheet of paper or notebook that was ever within my reach while I had some sort of writing utensil never got away without my wrath of doodles. Creating is in my blood, it is my passion.

I temporarily changed my path following my graduation from Art school and earned a BA in Psychology. Although it has been useful in life (?) useful in navigating my relationships (?) I could never be fulfilled without some ELEMENT of Art in my daily life.

I serendipitously stumbled upon the art of glassblowing and began creating lil critters and al sorts of goodies. As I had worked my way through college in the Food and Bev industry, I realized that my quirky personality and ways of relating to people would easily flow through me through lampwork...it has been a fun ride so far and I love creating beautiful custom jewelry for friends as well as unique beads and marbles that can be used so diversely. I love my art, my friends and am branching out to include more in my work...
