Hey Shahar, I just wanted you to know that I received my order (two-for-one Galilean Style sandals) on Monday. [It’s late Wednesday night here].
Roman Glass and Silver Pendant with a Modern Twist
This pendant is made from Roman glass which has been fashioned into an excellent modern design. It strikes a balance of being both striking and elegant at the same time.
The dual nature of this pendant is evident in both design and concept. It is so striking simply because the core of the pendant is quite clearly divided between two equally exciting designs. One diagonal half is comprised of a swirling sterling silver pattern. The other consists entirely of shimmering silver colored Roman glass. The two sides are divided by a diagonal stripe made of small silver dots. This rectangular pendant is held together by an equally attractive clasp made of a familiar swirling silver design.
However, the duality of this particular item of Jewish jewelry is also apparent in its concept, which combines history and modern beauty. The contemporary design is tempered by the 2,000 year old Roman glass which sits at its very center.
Found in Israel, this piece of glass is testament to the ingenuity of the Roman Empire, which developed glass making into a thriving industry.
