We like nothing better than to be in our little workshop creating things like this lovely Uranium glass accessory which could be used as a keyring, a bag charm or anything else you can think of. We especially like using Uranium glass (also known as Vaseline or Pearline glass) because it’s so unusual and beautiful. We made this piece from raw stock Uranium glass which we source from the Czech Republic; we cut and kiln-fire the pieces, this piece was then sand-tumbled to create a sea-glass effect before being hand wrapped with Copper band, the joints are Silver soldered to add strength and aesthetics. For this accessory we have plated the Copper band with Nickel as it imparts a durable, shiny finish.
Uranium glass does not glow in the dark on its own but it exhibits a beautiful yellow green fluorescence under UV light (black-light). This photo-chemical phenomenon produces a somewhat eerie, ethereal glow which we find fascinating.
Most of the items in our shop are handmade, one-of-kind or unique and this piece is no exception. Our glass pieces are carefully hand-crafted items they may contain a number of lines, marks or surface features, they are an intentional result of the manufacturing process and are by design. When our Uranium glass pieces have been sand-tumbled their surfaces may not have a completely homogenous frosted appearance they may have some areas smoother than others and they may have lines, dents or even small chips. This is all part of the tumbling process and indeed if they were natural sea-glass the same sort of effects would occur.
Dimensions: Approximately 56mm x 22mm across widest points
Weight : Approximately 12g
