Chic and feminine, this stylish polished yellow glass pendant comes with a gold filled bail on a gold finished brass chain that measures 20 inches.

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 and polished by hand and paired with the perfect bail and chain to highlight the beauty and intricacy of this unique piece. 

DIMENSIONS & NECKLACE LENGTH: Glass 1-5/8" x 2-¼" with bail 1-5/8" x 2-7/8" Chain 20"
