Auto Glass Necklace - Statement Whole No. 2

Auto Glass Necklace - Statement Whole No. 2

$140.00

Glass from car break-ins was reclaimed from a curb in Cleveland and upcycled into this necklace. Tempered auto glass gives the glass the unique cracks and color, encased in a silver alloy. This black glass is from the edge of auto glass, called the "frit band," while aqua glass is the natural color of a broken passenger window. This piece contains 4 selections of glass with a hole between, which a 30-inch hypoallergenic stainless steel runs through. The piece is about 2 inches by 2 inches.

After a car is broken into, a pile of glass is left on the curb. Deanna Dionne sweeps up this glass and reclaims it. Various processes are applied to make it into wearable art.

Auto glass is naturally aqua tinted. Most pieces are kept transparent, they will appear differently on various skintones and clothing. With the MIRROR collection I've applied a mirrored backing which reflects back the aqua tint. Black glass is from a tinted rear window.
