Two pieces of glass are baked in a kiln at very high temperatures to create these fascinatingly beautiful pendants. Rosa and Nelson, the Guatemalan artisans who create them, sprinkle glass powder between the two pieces of glass. The powder reacts with the heat to create the colors and bubbles in the finished product. Because the pendants are completely handcrafted, no two are alike, so you'll have a truly one-of-a-kind look.
They're on a faux-suede cord and are about 2" long.
Rosa and Nelson are the gifted Guatemalan artisans who create this exceptional jewelry. They earn fair wages, are treated with respect, and work in a safe and clean environment. In addition, women with children to care for can work in their homes. Dunitz & Company, a leading fair trade supplier who works with these artisans, donates to child education and lunch programs, mother-infant care, a hospital and a free library.
