            I had my eye on these for several years and requested them for my birthday this year. They are very pretty and it's cool to think of wearing a piece of history. They are actually slightly larger than I expected, which is a good thing. And the setting is very attractive.

            Roman glass and druzy agate: two unusual materials combine to form a truly conversation-starting necklace. Atlanta-based artist Mickey Lynn begins by sorting through fragments of 2,000-year-old Roman glass to find the best colors. After Roman craftsmen discovered glassblowing in the 1st century A.D., it became one of the most widely available materials in the Roman world. Today, aqua-colored fragments are abundant, their colors having developed over centuries of contact with the earth.

            Many people are surprised to learn that glass was one of the most widely available materials in the ancient world. By the 1st century A.D., glassblowing techniques had been perfected to the point where household items like glass cups and vessels were common. Two thousand years later, fragments of this ancient glass are found throughout the lands of the former Roman Empire.

            Artist Mickey Lynn transforms ancient materials into a contemporary, cascading pair of earrings. She pairs fragments of Roman-era glass with drops of moonstone, clear quartz, white agate, and gold-covered pyrite. The 2,000-year-old glass is authentic; fragments like these are abundant at archaeological sites throughout the vast territory of the former Roman Empire. Lynn gives these pieces of glass, which may have once been part of a wine glass or water jug, a new life as evocative pieces of jewelry. Streams of gold-plated chain connect this timeless collection of watery hues.

            During the 1st century AD, glass production in the Roman world drastically changed as the art of glass blowing was discovered and vessels for everyday use began to be made in aqua hues. Remains of many 2,000-year-old drinking glasses, vases, and jugs continue to be uncovered across the former Roman Empire, especially in Israel. Each glass medallion in this remarkable necklace was once part of an object that was created more than two millennia ago. It may have been part of a water vessel carried by a servant, or a bottle that held perfume or medicine.

            The Tuscan village of Caprese Michelangelo—the birthplace of the famed Renaissance artist—is nestled in the hills among chestnut trees, small vineyards, and fields of sunflowers. This picturesque landscape was first settled by the Etruscans, and our reproduction coin jewelry is inspired by their precise gold metalwork. Gold-plated, Etruscan medallions alternate with reproduction Roman-era coins treated with a verdigris patina to create a museum-worthy conversation piece. Each piece is handcrafted in a studio in Caprese Michelangelo, just down the road from the artist's former home.
