FOR YOUR LITTLE BLACK DRESS

Item Category: 

The perfect addition to your jewelry collection, this 4cm by 4cm pendant hangs from an 18 inch serpentine style sterling chain.  Created by world renowned artist Rony Yizhaky, the pendent is made of glass fragments originating from parts of ancient blown glass vessels of the Roman Byzantine Empire between the 1st and 6th centuries A.D., shortly after glass was invented.  The glittering glass fragments, some transparent while others are colored, were picked up on ancient sites in the Holy Land.  The spectrum of colors were formed over hundreds of years and are the result of combined effects of climatic conditions and surrounding earth.
