This green and white glass pendant necklace is made from opalescent fused glass using the murrine technique. The open bezel-set pendant also has a necklace comprised of 48-50 strands of peridot green nylon-coated stainless steel that measures 18 inches, and a sterling silver lobster claw clasp. The bail is sterling silver.

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, melted again, and 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.

DIMENSIONS & NECKLACE LENGTH: Glass: 1" diameter With setting and bail: 1 1/4" x 1 3/4" Peridot Green Multi Strand Chain: 18"
