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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Ridged Glass Guitar Picks:

    This was a gift for my boyfriend in which he truly did love the way it looked and how it felt in his hand. However, he wasn't the greatest fan of the sound it made when hitting the strings on his acoustic guitar. He prefers a softer sound that comes with a plastic guitar pick. On the other hand, he thinks it works well with an electric guitar. So it really is all about personal preference. Still a fantastic gift!

            Rounder and bigger than I expected compared to other picks and the photo; but, probably due to each being hand-crafted.

                I gave this product to my boyfriend for Christmas. He tells me that he loves it, it gives a rich full sound similar to soft picks but can also produce the more "scratchy" tones of a hard pick. He seems to enjoy playing with it and I love listening!

                    I gave this pick to my boyfriend for Christmas. He had never seen a glass guitar pick before. He likes the different "glassy" sound. He likes variety in his music and that sound is perfect for some of it.
