  • the story

Cool and Refined

Picture that first morning after a long winter when you know that spring is on its way, light catching the ice as it begins to melt. This delicate necklace lets you carry that fleeting beauty with you. Its pendant is handcrafted from icy blue glass that dangles, as if ready to drip, from a thin silver chain.

Jewelry artist Jess Panza grew up at the rainy foot of the Appalachian Mountains, and soaked in the magic of watching raindrops perpetually race each other down the window pane. She now captures that sense of natural wonder in her atmospheric accessories. Handmade in Los Angeles, CA.

Comments about AQUA RAINDROP PENDANT:

I got this necklace for my girlfriend for her birthday and she LOVES it. She wears it for both casual and dressy occasions and gets lots of compliments. Overall a great product.

Only complaint is that she's worn it maybe 10 times and the wire in the center of the pendent has come loose from the glass.

Comments about AQUA RAINDROP PENDANT:

Got this for my girlfriend for her birthday. She loved it! Only complaint that I got is that the chain is quite delicate and tangles on occasion. However, she feels it fits with the style of the necklace and wouldn't change it. Thanks for a great product!

    Beautiful pendant...true to color as seen on the website. Great design, simple and elegant. Only complaint is that the chain broke after wearing it once. So I will have to find a new chain.

    This delicate pendant could, at a glance, almost be mistaken for a shimmering drop of water. Would you wear Jess Panza's handmade piece?

    This is a nice idea, but if you look at the top of the pendant near the bail, the glass looks jagged and sharp. I'd be scared to wear it.

    Lovely, simple. Would go with a lot. I would hope it's very delicate and would like it to be a bit tinier overall, though. Perhaps, if popular, consider a smaller size of this.

    Cute! I can imagine wearing this to the city; Cute, simple design, doesn't look too expensive, but if someone did try to mug me, I'd have something sharp to defend myself with, too!

    A little too fragile looking. Plus the loop at the top looks a little rough.

    I think this is so simple and elegant. I would be interested in the cost. It would be pretty long or short chained.

    I'm loving the pendant - I'd suggest the chain be a little more delicate but other than that - it looks like a "keeper".

    IF I saw someone wearing that, I would never guess it was supposed to resemble a raindrop.

    Pamela

    Really like this. How about a stronger chain

    Catherine
    Vote: Thumbs up!

    While I gave this lovely piece a 'thumbs up' it really does depend on just how fragile this piece may be. Would need more info regarding that aspect of the design.

    Cool idea, but when I see it I think of baby drool. Maybe it's just me. But then again when I am toting along my 6 month old, I am sure others would think the same!

    Just doesn't o anything for me.

    Lorraine

    I don't care for the long silver shank that is deeply embedded into the glass and the top of the pendant looks jagged. The glass on top is too thin and looks susceptible to breakage.

    It seems to be too fragile, since it is made from glass, the chain does not look like it goes with the pendant, a box chain would look better

    I love the idea behind this, and the color is my favorite. I would only worry about breaking it right at the top.

    Heather
    Vote: Thumbs up!

    I love this idea, but fragility would be a concern for me, too. Also, I think the delicate chain is complementary, but I would like to see it with a couple other styles (box, snake, etc). And, I'm with Jen on this one -the prices on the unique and interesting pieces I see on UG very rarely fit into my budget.

    Helena
    Vote: Thumbs up!

    Before even reading the back story I fell in love with this peice. I knew exactly what it was. It is so simple and elegant that I would wear it with everything. I just worry that it may break off from the top. The color is spot on! Love it.

    Due to the economy, I can't always buy what I like. I like this, but purchase will depend on the price.

    It could also be a tear of joy or saddness to give to someone - to your daughter as a tear of joy from when she was born or to a distant love whom you miss deeply.

    glass jewelry is nice but this has been done before, you need to step it up if your making glass now.

    Vote: Thumbs up!

    Just a thought-- I would need to know how fragile that drop is. If its borosilicate glass, then fine. Otherwise, I would be concerned about it.

    marsha

    cute but its missing something. too simply

    Kimberly

    Beautiful! I usually wear slightly larger scale jewelry, though, and so probably wouldn't buy for myself. Would love to see it in earrings!
