DEPRESSION GLASS NECKLACE
Delicate and lovely, these glass necklaces are handmade in Pennsylvania by artist Laura Bergman from the broken remains of a vintage cake plate (pink) and saucers, plates, tumblers and cookie jars (yellow). The pastel glass, which still maintains its original Cherry Blossom embossed pattern, was made in great quantities during the 1930s and 40s, and is now known as Depression glass.
A beautiful link to the past, the glass is salvaged from the Pennsylvania Amish Country in an effort to help the environment and protect wildlife by removing this hazard. Each piece is finished with sterling silver wire. Due to the reclaimed nature of this necklace, each piece will vary.

An avid antique glass and bottle collector, artist Laura Bergman lives near a wooded area with multiple antique bottle dumps. "It always bothered me how, as a collector, we take away the pretty whole bottles, but leave the broken pieces behind," she says. See all creations.
