It's been said that people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

But sometimes you just can't help it. Luckily, the glass jewelry by local label Meztiza Designs are pretty unbreakable.

Marisa Martinez started as a painter. However, with a gift of materials and lessons, she channeled her artistry into a line of jewelry.

At her Minneapolis studio, she creates beads from Moretti glass and forges silver bracelets, pendants and rings. She believes that many stones have healing and protective qualities.

That will really guarantee that you don't break that heart of glass.

Meztiza Designs trunk show on Wednesday, 7 to 10 p.m., A. Michele, 1591 Selby Av, St. Paul, 651-917-6966. Bring a friend and pick a free semiprecious stone ring. There will also be store discounts, drawings and treats.
