Ancient Glass

Roman-Byzantine periods

1st to 6th century C.E.

Based on a sundial found at Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered, this pendant necklace has a iridescent glass semicircle hanging from a silver disk. The green toned glass echos the fine glassware crafted in ancient Israel that gets covered with a shimmering patina over the centuries.

The silver disk is a replica of the original sundial that is etched with gradations around a hole which most likely held a vertical post. The post cast a shadow, dividing the hours of the day and night according to the seasons.
