The Heart Series pendants have a copper heart inclusion within the glass. This one is created with shades of transparent amethyst and opalescent mauve glass. The copper heart fires to a magenta reddish hue. At its widest points the pendant is 1.5" long and 1.25" wide.
These pendants are created by firing multiple layers of glass for many hours in a hot kiln at temperatures exceeding 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. The glass is allowed to cool and then cold worked (cutting and grinding) into a pleasing organic shape. Each piece is then returned to the kiln and fired again to give it a nice thick polished edge.
Please note that small bubbles can form between the layers of glass where air has become trapped as the piece fully fuses. This is part of the whimsy of kiln firing.
Each pendant is unique and handcrafted by me here in my studio in St. Petersburg, FL.
This pendant is mounted on a sterling silver-plated bail. The hole through the bail is large enough to allow a variety of necklaces to be used for wearing.
Every pendant comes with an 18" stainless steel chain with a 2" extender.
I am passionate about protecting the environment and employ sustainable practices whenever possible. I try to strike a responsible balance between protecting the glass and reducing waste. I select recycled shipping materials and 100% of the packaging you receive is recyclable including the packing tape, tissue paper and zero-waste logo stickers printed with algae ink!
