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.


Next Lynn chooses a piece of agate druzy to showcase. Druzy is the word for the mineral crystals that build up on a rock's surface over thousands of years of moisture and evaporation. These tiny crystals gleam like a dusting of sparkling sugar. Each Roman glass fragment and piece of druzy is unique and no two necklaces will be alike.


Handcrafted in Atlanta, U.S.A. Roman glass and Uruguayan agate druzy hand-knotted with silk; gold-plated brass. Adjustable 16–18"L. Pendant: approximately 1 1/4"L x 3/4"W. Lobster claw clasp.

The Celtic knot, or triquetra, that frames this sparkling necklace dates back to the 6th-century, when art from Ireland and the British Isles developed into a style that was unique from the rest of Europe. Illuminated manuscripts like the Lindisfarne Gospels, the Book of Durrow, and the Book of Kells are full of illustrations featuring complex knotwork. In Celtic and Pagan traditions, the triquetra symbolizes earth, sun, and sky, or the stages of a woman’s life: young woman, mother, and grandmother. In Christian tradition, it is a symbol of the holy trinity.
