This gorgeous glass pendant necklace is an enchanting bright green with a satin finish. Handmade using the murrine rollup technique, the glass pendant is not only striking, but would make a wonderful addition to any glass jewelry collection.

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 shaped and hand polished to give it a uniquely soft satin luster.

DIMENSIONS & NECKLACE LENGTH: Glass: 1 7/8" diameter Brass pinch bail: 1 7/8" x 3 1/4" Adjustable chain max length 30"
