Simple, yet modern and chic, this limited edition kiln cast roll up murrini glass pendant necklace incorporates hand pulled murrini and fusing, to create a one of a kind patterned piece that would perfectly pair with your favorite t-shirt or little black dress! This oval pendant necklace is made from recycled blue glass.

The glass 1 3/4-inch x 1 1/4-inch pendant necklace come with a silver plated 23.5 inch necklace and sterling silver 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 newly cast piece is shaped by hand tumbled for weeks and fire polished to highlight the intricacy of this unique pendant.
