Pyrex Pendant - Roosters

Having hunted Pyrex for years and coming to the point I have more that I know where to put, I have been parting with a lot of my collection.  Even then I have a lot!  Being the crafty type I am, I decided to try my hand a making pendants from Pyrex shards as I'm experienced at making them from the fused glass I make.  It's been lots of fun and I've been sharing my creations on Facebook, my blog and pinterest and was encouraged to make some for sale for my Etsy shop.  Now I have gone as far as to start trading my excess Pyrex for shards.  It's amazing how many people hold onto their broken dishes, even then, they still can't seem to part with them.  It's a wonderful thing for me to be able to extend the life of some of these dishes by making jewelry.  I thought I'd post my story with my latest piece.  This pendant is going to the person that was kind enough to send me her broken dish.  The pendant is wrapped with 18K gold plated wire and embellished with amber, black onyx and pearl.

  1. This is such a beautiful pendant, Evie! You know, I can understand people keeping the pieces of the broken Pyrex-they must hate to let it go. I love my pendant, I wore it to a party yesterday, and got so many compliments!
