About the Carved Series:
An exploration of color play (oh, the colors!) and texture, the Carved Series exhibits deeper engraving.
The carving and engraving process is done underwater. This keeps the glass cool and prevents glass dust from becoming airborne.
The natural textures in carved dichroic* glass are enhanced with carving, so these pieces have subtle surface textures.
Drop – 5/8″ x 1-1/8″ sterling silver wire wrapped.
Glass: rainbow dichroic glass fused atop opaque white, or transparent deep red. One has opaque red and black blended with the dichroic. Another shows transparent burgundy and opaque black blended with the dichroic top layer. There is more than one layer of dichroic glass in a third piece.
Oval – 1/2″ x 1″
Glass: rainbow dichroic glass fused atop opaque striated green with black.
Design note: when backordered, Ovals will be wire wrapped with sterling silver instead of the bail shown in the photos.
Each pendant includes an 18″ silver plated chain.
Care Tip: Please do not wear while swimming or bathing.
Each Thistle Glass piece has been properly annealed in a kiln for added strength and durability. The back is signed for authenticity.
Carved Series backorder note: This series is available for backorder while supplies last! Add a note to your order to request a specific piece shown in the photo gallery. Because each piece is handcrafted, please expect variations in the carved pattern and color hues from piece to piece. The shape and size remain the same. We will do our best to accommodate requests.
If you order more than we have in stock, please allow 2 – 6 weeks for order fulfillment. Once we receive your order, we will email you with a more exact timeframe.
