  • the maker

Rosemary Pierro

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 RIDGED GLASS GUITAR PICKS:

I specifically bought the sunset pick to commemorate a special moment with my husband which happened at sunset. Unfortunately, the colors of the pick were just brown and black instead of vibrant yellows and oranges as in the display picture. It was delivered quickly and in a lovely gift box, but I was disappointed by the pick itself. My husband likes the sound it makes, but says that it pulls the strings too much to really play. It will be displayed instead.

Service and delivery comments:

The delivery was prompt and the product arrived in perfect condition.

                          It was a present for my brother who plays at local venues and enjoys practicing.
                          He had never heard of anything like it, and he said it changes the sound and makes it more present. My uncle who also plays pointed out that it won't wear out quickly like other pics. I just enjoyed giving my brother an interesting present that he had to try out immediately!

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          I got an email with a tracking number.
                          The number didn't work for a few days (it said "does not exist). I called and talked to a very pleasant customer service rep who assured me the product was ordered and would be on its way. And after a couple more days the tracking showed up and product was delivered within about a week.

                          I'm voting yes because these are cool. But in my experience, people lose guitar picks all the time.

                          These look fun, I usually play (bass) with a stone pick. Wonder if the sound would be similar?
