This beautiful pine green and white donut-shaped glass pendant can be dressed up for a special occasion or or simply paired with a casual outfit. Made from recycled glass, the stylish green glass pendant comes on a gold tone 24-inch box chain with a textured hinged bail.

TECHNIQUE: This shattered series, kiln formed glass pendant incorporates recycled hand-pulled murrini glass and fusing to create a one of a kind patterned piece.

Crafted over multiple firings, this piece starts as strips of colored sheet glass fused into a panel. The panel is reheated in a glass blowing studio called a “hot shop” and rolled onto a blowpipe. The molten hot glass is stretched and pulled into a rod called cane, using a classic murrini technique. This cane is chopped into pieces called murrini revealing the pattern in cross-section.

This pendant combines the fragments, chips, and slivers of glass that break off during the process of chopping murrini. What would typically be discarded is carefully sorted, cleaned and melted together in a kiln with temperatures approaching 1500 degrees. Finally this piece is carved by hand, fire polished, and paired with the perfect bail and chain to highlight the beauty and intricacy of this unique piece.
