Mini car glass necklace - Shard
This small necklace is made of reclaimed broken glass upcycled from car break-ins in Cleveland, Ohio. Deanna Dionne goes around Cleveland looking for glass left on the curb from car break-ins, sweeps it up, and creates jewelry.
This listing is for the smallest pendant size, just a little smaller than a dime, hanging on a 18" stainless steel chain, with a mirrored effect which reflects the natural green tint of the glass. Sometimes glass breaks into long straight shards, and these necklaces will have a piece around 1/2 inch long. Model shown wearing 16" necklace.
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.
