This striking pendant necklace is made with blue glass. The glass pendant is reversible with one side having a polished finish, and the other, a satin finish. The 18k Yellow Gold filled bail is laser welded on. It would truly make a great 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 molten, it is shaped, stretched, and pulled into a long glass rod. This rod has the original pattern running through its length. This rod is cut into small pieces of varying thicknesses, revealing the pattern in cross-section. These pieces, called murrini, are placed in a mold and melted in a kiln and are fused into a solid shape. 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.
