      Comments about Roman Glass Necklace:

      The set was a gift from my husband, so I couldn't return it. I liked the earrings as they seemed to be a bit better made. The glass was beautiful on both the earrings and necklace, but the necklace was very thinly made and the definition of the metal workmanship was poorly done. It just didn't seem worth the price paid. I love the idea of the ancient glass, but just wish the metal work had done it justice.

              Wear a piece of history with this conversation-starting jewelry made with ancient pieces of Roman glass. Excavated in Israel, the glass has picked up an iridescent patina from the earth in which it rested for about 2,000 years. 22-karat gold-vermeil wires encircle each glass disk, which may have once been a wineglass, jug, or other vessel.

              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.

              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.

              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.
