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 really like the colors in the picture, but when I received it, it looked nothing like either of the pictures. I knew that it was handmade, so I can't expect it to look as pictured. I ordered the "lava" color, which turned out to be green with a splash of blue. I tried it out, and it made a unique sound and the textured grip is nice so it doesn't move while playing.

                This was a gift for my boyfriend in which he truly did love the way it looked and how it felt in his hand. However, he wasn't the greatest fan of the sound it made when hitting the strings on his acoustic guitar. He prefers a softer sound that comes with a plastic guitar pick. On the other hand, he thinks it works well with an electric guitar. So it really is all about personal preference. Still a fantastic gift!

                  I like that it is a little thicker than a standard pick so it is easier to hold.
