A classic wearable piece of art, this handmade designer pendant will add a unique touch to your look.
Featuring a unique combination of techniques, this distinctive pendant showcases a sparkling display of woven metal under layers of fused glass - creating an almost kaleidoscopic effect when you move. The silver wires woven together create the kind of brilliance normally associated with diamonds and the pyramid shape of the glass also subtly distorts the look of the underlying woven metal.
Perfect for dressing up an outfit or accessorizing with casual wear, it makes a great gift as well!
I have pioneered a new technique which creates the woven metal under glass effect. Using a medieval finger weaving technique, I weave strips from thin metal wire. I then take that woven metal fabric and embed it behind glass. The different shapes of glass either magnify or distort the underlying weave creating many interesting visual effects. In order to take these visual effects even further, I then fuse layers of glass in my kiln and put the woven metal fabric behind that.
But my favorite part is how the bends and the twists of the woven metal fabric interact with the light that is focused by the glass. The intense sparkly nature of these pieces rivals the sparkle in a well cut diamond!
Here is a brief video of me weaving the woven metal fabric:
