Re-Purposed Glass & Abalone Pendants
by Ronald P Black.
(Grand Ronde, OR)
You know the saying, “One Man’s Trash is another Man’s Treasure”.
Well, I was really fortunate to acquire scrap glass from a very well known Glass Blower and Abalone Shells from Divers.
I thought to myself, there must be a use for it all and so the story began about fusing scrap glass and polishing Abalone.
It is a long process of designing, cleaning, cutting, crushing, sorting, sifting, grinding & polishing before the raw materials become pieces of Jewelry, but it is well worth the effort.
