Take Your Pick

Inspired by the beauty of molten lava and its similarity to glass, these luminous guitar picks by Hawaiian artist Rosemary Pierro bring the rhythm of glasswork to music. Rare and exceptional at producing a harder, metallic sound, the Ridged Glass Guitar Pick works with all guitar strings and is sturdy enough to withstand different musical styles. Each individually-torched borosilicate pick features easy-to-grip texture for turning your jam session into a work of art. Handmade by Rosemary Pierro in Hawaii.

Choose from "Sunset" (left) or "Surf" (right), (right).

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Made in Hawaii

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

Rosemary Pierro spends a lot of time outdoors in her native Hawaii. Working with hot glass touches on the Hawaii's natural beauty of lava flowing and the ocean's movements. Her favorite part of the glass-working process is that moment, after an idea is all planned out and then you sit down at the torch and see what the flame has to say. You can only impose so many ideas onto how the fire will melt and move the glass. In truth, a good artist always works with the glass.

Glass artists always wonder what to do with the leftover bits of glass. This is Rosemary's best idea yet. The guitar picks are no longer made from unused pieces. To ensure durability and sound quality, she now uses only first quality borosilicate glass. But, the idea started with the pretty little pieces of glass laying around her studio.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Ridged Glass Guitar Picks:

        I purchased this for my boyfriend for X-mas and he was intrigued by it. He stated it is a different feel for playing but he does like it, and would suggest it to anyone who plays. He is still getting used to it, but the sound that it makes is great, and different than a normal pick. I do not play, however I listen to him all the time and I can tell the difference in sound from his regular pick to this glass pick and I do like both sounds.

            Very, very cool. The pick is beautiful and functional. It produces a unique sound when plucking that can be described as mimicking a muted string. I love it.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Ridged Glass Guitar Picks:

              I purchased two glass picks for both of my nephews. They could not love them more. It's a very unique and artsy gift. None of us even knew something like this existed. Their guitar teacher thought it was cool and is going to order some for himself as well as gifts for fellow musicians. The glass guitar picks and the guitar pic punch were their favorite Christmas presents this year.
