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.

      I thought it looked grand but a little stiff to play with. It gives you a new sound though that is unique. I thought is should be less money.

          I bought this pick for my boyfriend. One, the blue color was nicer than on the internet - so it was a real visual pleasure. When my boyfriend opened it, he really enjoyed it and the thought of it - claimed it was a great size compared to the picks he frequented. When he played with the pick - he claimed it gave the sound an airy quality and something he could use later to create a separate kind of sound. He really enjoyed it! Though pricy for a pick - it's unique and provides the music lover a different experience - glad I bought it!

                Bought this for my boyfriend whose only used the same pics for years. At first it was a little strange to get use to because of the rigidness and thickness, but after several jamming outs he Loves it.

                    My husband and I have a policy of only buying each other small gifts for Valentine's day, so this year I decided on the "Surf" glass pick. My husband really loved it. He is a musician, obsessed with the beach, and we had our honeymoon in Kaua'i where these picks are made - it was a perfect fit. Also, he thought the pick was so pretty he wants to get a second one just to display it somewhere in our home. It is very sturdy and comfortable to play with, he says.

                    I only gave this 4 out of 5 stars because, while the pick does allow for wonderful clarity when strumming and picking, there is a sharper, metallic tone as well which may not be desirable for everyone. Otherwise, we love it!

                      My husband is a jazz and classical guitarist so when I saw the pick I had to get it for him. Sadly when it came I was pretty upset. It looked and felt more like the plexiglass ones he already has. It also gives a metallic twang everytime he plays. He's tried it on both his nylon and steel and it just doesn't work. I was really hoping it would. If you're into cool stuff like this, go ahead, but I just had a bad experience.
