This gorgeous glass pendant necklace will give you the good kind of blues! Handmade using the rollup murrine technique, this is a one of a kind patterned piece of exquisite jewelry. It's made from translucent and opalescent glass, and has a 2mm silver-plated brass chain that measures 20 inches with a lobster claw clasp. This versatile chain has a removable screw off end cap and can be used with other pendants. It would truly make the perfect gift for your best girl, or even yourself!

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 hot enough 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 murrini, are placed in a mold and melted again and are kilncast into a solid shape. Finally, the piece is polished by hand to highlight the beauty and intricacy of this unique piece.
