Cast Glass Red Heart Necklace on Sterling Silver Chain
by Marcy Peterson.
This red heart pendant is created using a careful blend of fine to coarse glass frit that is then kiln-formed.
The crushed glass is cast in a ceramic mold to approximately 1400 degrees to fuse into shape. Each handmade ornament is slightly different. There are minor variations in each color pattern.
This beautiful necklace will make a wonderful gift for a loved one or yourself!
The elegant glass heart is strung on a sterling silver chain that measures 20″ long. The pendant itself measures approximately 1.25″ W x 1 3/4″ L and is quite sturdy.

Marcy is exploring and fine-tuning her kiln-formed glass and custom etching processes. She explains, “Cast and fused glass have been my favorites to have and to hold. There is a tactile aspect to the finished work that appeals to me. Now I have the opportunity to design and produce original works. Whether small production or original one-of-a-kind pieces, it is incredibly satisfying to put my originality, inspiration, and history into what I do every day.”
