About


This amazing glass and sterling silver caged pendant is a collaboration between Charlie Shoulders and Mike Kozumplik. Each customized handmade, flame-worked, borosilicate cabochon is made to order. Each contains a tiny galaxy including a man-made opal: planet, crescent moon or star. This pendant also includes wisps of precious 24k gold and solid silver fume, and a sprinkling of cremains. It is then set into a hand-fabricated, Sterling Silver, setting with orbiting streaks of silver designed for gorgeous and galactic impact. Each glass cabochon will be different, and every silver setting will be unique.   We ask for 1/4th a teaspoon of cremation ash per.

The mist in the glass cabochon is formed by vaporizing pure silver and/or gold over the glass during creation, called precious metal fuming. These vapors will create unique wispy patterns and subtle coloring. The gold fume will generally appear as gold/copper/peach tones and the silver will appear as blue/white tones. Sometimes other coloring will be present, most noticeable in direct sunlight. Fumed colors are incidental and unpredictable and therefore not guaranteed. However you may request gold and/or silver in your order notes, and you can also request the level of fuming (more or less), when adding to your cart.

Approximate measurements:

  • Glass cab - 1” diameter
  • Finished pendant - 1 1/2” diameter, 3/4” profile

 Cab may rotate within the cage and may shift position slightly with larger motions but it is well secured and will not fall out.  As this is a collaboration this item will be within 6 weeks once ordered and collection kit is returned to Charles.

 

Please note this listing DOES NOT include a chain.  You can purchase an optional snake chain or a curb chain, thicker curb chain. We suggest the thicker chain.
