Hope allows us to carry on despite struggles, and rise and turmoil of life.
A cubic zirconia rises above the turbulent waves made of silvered ivory glass.
When you wear it, remember that you whine like a star in the darkness when you have Hope.
What gives you Hope?
This pendant will be made when ordered. Each will look unique because of its handmade nature. If requested, I can email a picture before I mail it. This pendant will come on a silver colour chain so you can wear it out of the box.
All my beads are made by myself, and annealed in a digital kiln directly from the flame. They have been cleaned for your convenience.
When glass melts, it becomes a liquid-pliable and easy to manipulate into the shape you want. Glass will cool off the quickest where the 'skin' contacts the air. This means while the outside cools and hardens, it will contract, while the inner core is still liquid and will need to expand! This creates a lot of stress, and there will be cracks and weaknesses in the glass.
By placing the hot glass in a waiting hot kiln, the glass is able to equalize and the kiln cools off very slowly, letting the glass reach one temperature at the same time
