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 called cane. This cane has the original pattern running through its length. After cooling the cane is cut into short lengths and these are bundled together and heated again. The pulling process in the hot shop is repeated and the bundle is melted together into one pulled cane. This multiples the pattern and stretches it out to create the tiny detail. This repulled cane is cut into small tiles of varying thicknesses, revealing the new pattern in cross-section. These pieces, called murrini, are placed in a mold and melted again and are fused 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.
