Roman Glass and Sterling Silver Necklace

 This beautiful necklace was artisan handcrafted using sterling silver and a large piece of ancient Roman glass.

The large asymmetrical pendant was made with a glass remnant that dates back to the Roman Empire. Roman subjects were prolific glass makers, perfecting an already ancient craft into a skilled art form. 

2000 years ago, the Roman Empire occupied all lands surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. The desert sands along the Eastern shores contained the perfect amount of silica for glass making. 

This region became the center for glass-works which were exported for use in other regions of the Empire. The color is predominantly the characteristic aqua-blue of the untreated natural glass from that period.

Today Roman Glass shards are found scattered throughout the vast regions of the Empire, where they are gathered for making into trinkets, jewelry, or collecting.
