- the maker
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.

It is glass, this just would not work!

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?
