Stunning, glowing glass hoops in an almost liquid looking color from vintage glass.
The broken bottles have been taken from the old glass dumps, ground and fired into beautiful glass hoops that measure approx. 3/4" across (just a tiny bit smaller than a quarter) and hand from sterling rings and surgical steel ear wires. Lightweight and comfortable, weighing 0.1 ounces (the same weight as a dime).
The blue color comes vintage blue mason jars.
Each piece includes "The Story of the Glass" detailing the history and age of the glass used.
Bottled Up Designs
An avid glass and bottle collector, I have lived in the Pennsylvania Amish Country all of my life. As a collector, I have spent countless hours poking through the many old glass and bottle dumps scattered throughout the natural wooded habitats and rural farmlands where I live.
One thing that has always bothered me though, is how collectors take the valuable whole bottles and glass pieces, but leave the broken glass behind for the environment and the wildlife to deal with.
I have seen baby deer laying in the broken glass, foxes, squirrels and countless other wildlife running through it. Even birds landing in the glass while searching for a meal. To me, though broken, this glass still has beauty and history, so I decided to pick up the pieces and turn them into something beautiful again, in my remarkable line of recycled glass jewelry. Each piece of this eco friendly jewelry is truly "A Little Piece of History for you to Wear."
As a collector, I have prepared for each piece "The Story of the Glass" detailing what the glass was originally and the age of the piece.
A truly unique way to preserve the past while helping the future.
