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.

        This was a gift for a friend who plays guitar almost religiously. He thought the glass picks were a wonderful gift, sturdy and solid feeling with a nice texture. I haven't heard yet how they play, but I'm sure I will soon.

              The glass against the strings sounds awful. The size is way big and the pick is more round shaped than a regular pick. Waste of money

                I actually bought both the glass and cymbal picks.....gave the glass away and kept the cymbal. Both make an unusual sound hitting the strings. Lots of fun if you're learning and a great teaching tool for children. The service was so fast.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Ridged Glass Guitar Picks:

                I bought this pick for my son for Christmas - he is a professional musician.
                He just thought it was the greatest thing. Unfortunately, he lost it when
                he was packing up after one of his shows. He was so very disappointed no
                one could find it.
                So now I bought him two, each a different color!
