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 piece features 2 selections of glass. The transparent black glass is from a tinted rear window. Below that is a transparent piece of glass from a rear window, with defrost lines running through. They are suspended by an extra-long 37 inch hypoallergenic stainless steel chain running through two copper tubes.
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.
