This striking pendant necklace is made with blue on blue glass. Handmade using the murrine rollup technique, this glass pendant has a polished finish and comes with a silver-plated brass omega chain necklace with pop clasp. 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 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 polished by hand to highlight the intricacy of this unique piece.
