Sea Turtle Pendant- Glass and Fire- Ron from Loveland
This Turtles Shell really captures the ocean look. This glass pendant was made using a glass blowing technique called lamp work. I use a method of submitting the color deep into the glass and as a result it has a very ocean type look to it. This art glass is very unique because it is a type of wearable art that makes you the studio or gallery. This glass sea turtle is about 1-3/4 inches long. Coloring can vary slightly because of internet photo not always showing true colors. However I can assure you that each one is very vibrant and a work of art! $49.00
