sparkles The rustic colours in this glass pendant result from the interaction between the metals in the different layers of glass while heated. This reaction creates a framing around the central image and changes the cream colour glass into caramel. firezap

Bending Glass

I love making these glass pendants. I'm trying to make something that is fun and has impact but that doesn't take itself too seriously. Colour matching gives me a bit of a thrill, as does coming up with a new way to work the glass. Glass is finicky and technical...there are a lot of rules. I don't like to follow a recipe as it is written, even if it is mine! So, although I've learned how to control the glass, my designs are often born of experiments and discovery.

I make a lot of pendants, but I view each one individually, the way I expect its new owner will. Quality is very important to me. I want my work to be affordable but I also want it to last. I like to save little stones, odd finds and mementos that remind me of friends, travels, and different periods of my life and I assume that others do too. I'd like to think that my pendants might end up as treasured keepsakes that evoke memories long after being worn as a necklace.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Are you looking for another colour or image? I might have it! Send me a message and I can send a photo or description of what I have.
-:- I'd also love to hear your suggestions. I can't promise that I can make it but many of my best items come from customer suggestions.
-:- Due to the lengthy design process for my images, I am unable to make one-off custom images for my necklaces, but again, I do welcome general image requests.

Sizing details

Pendant necklaces: most pendants are under 1" in width or length and usually about 3/4" x 7/8" or similar.
Necklaces: Most necklaces are 18" in length (this will be stated in the listing). Please send a message or add a note to your order if you would like another size.

Wholesale availability

Yes, I do wholesale!

Care instructions

My glass pendants are waterproof. The cord necklaces may last longer if kept dry but mine often get wet without issue:)

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship small items such as pendant necklaces in a flat mailer package as this greatly decreases your shipping cost.
