Auto Glass Necklace - MIRROR Statement No. 1
-CURRENTLY ON LOAN FOR NEW YORK FASHION WEEEK- 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.
A MIRROR effect has been applied to to the aqua glass, which allows the natural color to reflect through, enhancing the shiny details. The black piece is kept transparent.
This piece measures 3 3/4 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches tall. The hypoallergenic stainless steel chain is adjustable from 17 to 18 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.
