This glass necklace was constructed in multiple steps. I make all my glass murrini patterns from scratch in a hot glass studio, and the silver settings are designed by me, and hand-made specially for each individual piece.

The process of making glass murrini is a labor-of-love; I start with 3 or 4 various chunks of colored glass. I heat them up individually, and while they're hot, layer them one on top of another (like dip coat for ice cream), and then stretch out the mixed glob of hot glass to a long, thin "cane". I then chop up the "cane" to shorter lengths, stack them back together in a colored cup (looks very much like pencils and pens in a cup), or bind the canes with steel wire. (see additional image as an example of pattern in process). I then load the bundle into a kiln, heat it and stretch the bundle out again into another cane. When the glass is cool, I slice it up (like sushi), and polish each slice. it is only then that i can make different types of jewelry out of them.

This necklace is a beautiful combination of teal and gray. The size of the pendant is close to 1" in diameter and its silver chain is adjustable from 16inches to 18inches.
