- the story
Artist Etta Kostick was raised by a family of glassblowers along the woodlands and seashores of Massachusetts. Influenced by these scenic environs, tribal imagery, and the stately architecture of her current hometown, Chicago, she utilizes stained glass and malleable soldered metal to create refined geometric pieces that possess a touch of fantasy.
The artist's team uses classic techniques to make each frosty, blue-green pane and frames and crowns each tilted square with metal soldered into delicate curves and angles. Made in New York.

- the maker
Etta is compelled by glass in its many different forms and applications. She grew up in the woods and by the seashore in Massachusetts, in a family of glassblowers. After moving to Chicago in 2007 she started experimenting with stained glass, attracted to the many colors, textures, and its relationship to light.
Over the years Etta's fascination with glass has grown and has lead her to pursue and experiment with different methods of manipulating glass. Torch fired enameling, fusing, and incorporating intricate solder work are some of the techniques that Etta uses. She loves the transformative properties that occur when integrating these materials and techniques into her glass work.
Etta's love of jewelry was initially inspired by tribal jewelry and adornments she had collected from South Asia. Strong shapes and the feeling of empowerment they give to the wearer are elements that inspire her. Her jewelry incorporates bold designs as well as more delicate and organic elements that emulates things she sees in nature. Etta is constantly exploring and developing new visions for her work in glass and jewelry.

- Too Short
Comments about RHOMBUS STAINED GLASS PENDANT:
The pendent is really nice but the chain was way too short! I find myself looking to buy a chain for this pendent, which really defeats the purpose of getting this on sale. The pendent is fairly large and looks really weird on such a short chain. I think a longer chain would be much better, maybe at least 18 inches but I'm looking to buy one at 30 inches.
