This gorgeous glass pendant necklace is made from murrine opalescent and translucent glass. Handmade, using the murrine rollup technique, this bezel-set, multi-generational glass pendant also has a polished finish. This necklace has a light blue, dark blue and white design with a sterling bezel setting and sterling silver box chain.

TECHNIQUE: This piece of jewelry begins as various colors of sheet glass cut into strips, arranged in a pattern, and melted together in a glass blowing studio called a “hot shop”. The glass is heated on a blowpipe to temperatures exceeding 1600 degrees. When the glass is melting and is moving, it’s shaped, stretched, and pulled into a long glass rod. This rod has the original pattern running through its length. After cooling the rod is cut into varying thicknesses, revealing the pattern in cross-section. These pieces, called murrine, are placed in a mold and melted again and are kilncast into a solid shape. Finally, the piece is carved to fit its bezel setting and polished by hand to highlight the intricacy of this unique piece.
