Auto Glass Necklace - Encased Statement

Auto Glass Necklace - Encased Statement

$120.00

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. 

Four pieces of glass are suspended from a silver circle. Two of the pieces are left transparent, while the upper-right piece has a silver backing. That piece also contains dots which you may recognize from the edge of your windshield. The black piece in the center is from a tinted rear window.

This piece measures 1 inches wide by 1 1/2 inch tall. The hypoallergenic stainless steel chain is 32 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.
