I’m very intrigued by the optical effects of glass. It’s amazing to me that by simply changing the shape of the glass, it completely changes the way that you experience the underlying layer of woven metal behind the glass. To make that layer, I weave sheets of fabric from rose & yellow 14/20 gold fill wire or Argentium using an ancient medieval fingerweaving technique. Then I cut this fabric into smaller pieces to embed behind fused glass. The glass both magnifies the weave, giving it more definition, as well as collects the light, making the entire piece glisten. The result is simply stunning.
As an added bonus, the 18” sterling chain has large enough links that you can clasp it anywhere, making it versatile enough to work with almost any neckline.
