Glass pendants are made using thin layers of glass artfully arranged on a kiln shelf and fired to temperatures over 1000 degrees so that the glass fuses and becomes one piece.
Glass pendants are made using thin layers of glass artfully arranged on a kiln shelf and fired to temperatures over 1400 degrees. The glass is then cooled very slowly so that the it becomes strong on a molecular level. After the glass is cool enough to touch it is removed from the kiln to be "cold worked" which means it is cleaned, cut and sanded with diamond grinders and saws. This "cold working" is in preparation for the cut glass to be returned to the kiln for what is known as a "fire polish" so that the glass surface becomes smooth and shiny.
This piece is made with many different glass patterns and colors that reflect the bright colors of the tropics.
It is 2 inches long and 1 inch wide. The bail is silver plated copper. It also comes with a 16" black necklace cord.
