Glass Peace Review
If you like handmade jewelry Glass Peace is worth looking into they offer a wide variety of glass pendants, beads, rings, cabochons, and earrings all handmade by Amir Shawn and Allison Hill.Most of their art work is created by using a torch to manipulate a very durable, shock resistant glass called borosilicate (commonly known as Pyre). Using different sized rods and tubes of clear and colored glass, They create their one-of-a-kind lampwork glass pendants, earrings, and beads, then place the pieces in a computerized kiln to anneal them, which removes any stresses in the glass, ensuring a beautiful and durable piece that you will enjoy for a lifetime.
For a recent review I was sent a hand blown lampwork glass jellyfish pendant,The hand crafted glass pendant exhibited above features a jellyfish swimming in the depths of the ocean hanging from a thick glass loop with a 4.0mm hole size. It measures 18mm wide and 48mm from the top of the loop to the bottom of the pendant. The necklace and pendant are light weight & the black cord the pendant comes on is adjustable so you can wear it tight like a choker or wear it loose. I love the details in the jelly fish because it looks like thier is a real jelly fish floating inside of the glass,the pendant is small enough that I don't feel weight down & its large enough I can show it off which is always a plus with unique jewelry. Looking through the Glass Peace website you can find a number of beautiful glass creations which were all made by hand,Prices range from $19 to $49 per set. The shipping was fast & the pendant arrived in a very nice jewelry box with padding to insure it had a safe ride to its new home. ****This was not a paid post and my honest opinion was used.
