Kiln-formed, reactive pebble, wearable art, one-of-a-kind (OOAK), fused glass pendant, organic shape, boho jewelry, fusing reactions, artisan jewelry, great gift for her
This handmade, artisan pendant has fusing reactions in blue and red that make a striking statement. The color combination is both unusual and striking. This piece would dress up a casual outfit or a pair of jeans. The pebbles are well defined and transparent.
This is a one-of-kind, kiln-formed glass pendant. The process of making the pendant begins with a glass tile that is layered with glass powder and glass frit. I choose various colors that contain metals that react with each other to give a pebble effect. After the tile comes out of the kiln, I cut it up and mix it up with other tiles I have created. I refire the tiles and the effect of the high temperature on the layers and the reactions create the depth. When the new "puddle" of glass comes out of the kiln, I outline the pendant shape in the glass, cut it with a wet saw and then take it through 5 steps of polishing. Then the pendant goes back into the kiln for a final polish. The whole process takes about 50 hours to complete. Because the colors and reactions vary, each pendant is a one-of-a-kind piece.
I hope you enjoy the pendant as much as I enjoy the process.

Please note that the photographs are for informational purposes only. I try to capture the colors of the glass as close as possible and in different types of light, but each computer monitor will show colors slightly differently.
