shattered glass bib necklaceby Etta Kostick $90.00
- the story
Inspired by the deep blue palette of the ocean at Cape Cod, Etta Kostick created this beautiful bib necklace to resemble the mist coming off the water on a stormy day. Colorful pieces of glass are shattered with a hammer, and then artfully arranged on a clear cut of glass before being fused in the kiln. The result is a wearable work of art that comes to life once the light hits it. Handmade in Chicago.
Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

- the maker
Etta is compelled by glass in its many different forms and applications. She grew up in the woods and by the seashore in Massachusetts, in a family of glassblowers. After moving to Chicago in 2007 she started experimenting with stained glass, attracted to the many colors, textures, and its relationship to light.
Over the years Etta's fascination with glass has grown and has lead her to pursue and experiment with different methods of manipulating glass. Torch fired enameling, fusing, and incorporating intricate solder work are some of the techniques that Etta uses. She loves the transformative properties that occur when integrating these materials and techniques into her glass work.
Etta's love of jewelry was initially inspired by tribal jewelry and adornments she had collected from South Asia. Strong shapes and the feeling of empowerment they give to the wearer are elements that inspire her. Her jewelry incorporates bold designs as well as more delicate and organic elements that emulates things she sees in nature. Etta is constantly exploring and developing new visions for her work in glass and jewelry.
