Measuring approximately 1-1/2″ in width, this fused glass Nautilus Pendant will remind you of dipping your feet into the edge of the ocean, and collecting shells along the shore! You can almost smell the ocean spray coming off the waves.
Each pendant is individually handcrafted, including some varieties of the background glass. This ensures no two pendants are alike. Kiln-fired and annealed, this perfectly sequenced pendant is a touchable talisman. The variety of colour options in this summer necklace are comprised of the glass itself. As a result, the colour will stay true for as long as you own the jewelry.
The Nautilus Pendant pairs perfectly with your favourite summer sundress, or with a classy evening dress.
This fused glass summer necklace comes standard with a black satin weave rayon cord. This means it is great for friends with allergies to metal chains. The cord is approximately 24” long, with adjustable knots that slide. This allows you to just slip the necklace over your head. Wear at full length with a high necked blouse, or adjust to a shorter length depending on the neckline of your shirt. It will adjust as small as a choker style.
How’s it made?
We create the Nautilus Pendant using multiple steps. First, we design and create a silk screen stencil. If we are using our in-house made Ocean Mix background, we create the sheet glass using glass frits and powders. The sheet is fired to a smooth finish.
Next, we cut and polish the glass to the correct size. Then, the cabochon is fired to a contour temperature, ensuring the shape of the pendant is not lost.
After the pendant cools, we screen print the design onto the surface of the glass using the prepared screen and enamels. Then, we return the pendant to the kiln to sinter the enamels into the surface of the glass. During the firing process, the glass is annealed. This means the internal stresses within the glass are relieved, giving strength and durability to the jewelry.
Last, once the pendant has cooled a final time, we drill the cabochon for the wire bail, then tie the cord to finish the jewelry.
