Penelope Rakov, is a studio glass artist that became obsessed with a particular process making glass patterns called “murrini”, sometimes also called “millifiori”. Millifiori traditionally is in the shape of small flowers. But can also be made into many other kinds of images. Since she makes all of her own glass patterns, Penelope is continually coming up with new designs to set in her glass necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. Each piece reflects her joy in the process, which is steeped in an obsession with detail.

Penelope not only designs, creates and markets her fine art jewelry. She also works as a part-time professor at Salem Glass Community College. She teaches public access glassblowing at East Falls Glassworks, and Tyler School of Art.
