Process & Details
Process & Details
✧ ✦ ✧ I make these pendants individually from layers of glass, using a high temperature kiln as well as other tools and equipment.
✧ ✦ ✧ The image is printed onto a special paper which burns away in the kiln, allowing the image, made up of mostly metal oxide, to fuse to the glass.
✧ ✦ ✧The glass pendant is strong and durable but smooth to the touch.
✧ ✦ ✧ A hole is drilled into the pendant for a secure fit to the cord or chain.
✧ ✦ ✧ I make each neck cord and neck chain which are specially designed to keep the clasp in the back and the pendant in front:)
✧ ✦ ✧ I strive for zero-waste in my jewellery-making and many of my designs include materials left over and recycled from previous projects.
✧ ✦ ✧ Handmade by me, from start to finish.
✧ ✦ ✧ I have over a decade's experience fusing glass. My pendants are waterproof and made to last many years.
Thank you for looking!!!
My GLASS pieces are made from scratch and kiln-fired. The CORD necklaces are made with high quality Japanese waxed cotton. Most CHAIN parts and CLASPS are metal alloy unless specified or requested.
The cotton cord necklaces can get wet (I wear mine in the shower!) but may shrink in approximately 1 inch.
The glass pieces are quite sturdy, particularly those with rounded edges, but best not to drop them on a hard floor if possible;) Clean with a non-abrasive cloth or method.
