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 pick is great. My fiance loves it. With the electric guitar, the difference is not as noticeable, and he likes it for picking. With the acoustic, the sound is more different - not better or worse, just different. If he is playing chords, he does click it on the pick guard at times, which can be a disturbing sound. It doesn't crack or ruin the pick guard at all. He likes using for a change, and he's discovering some songs are better to use it with than others.

I specifically bought the sunset pick to commemorate a special moment with my husband which happened at sunset. Unfortunately, the colors of the pick were just brown and black instead of vibrant yellows and oranges as in the display picture. It was delivered quickly and in a lovely gift box, but I was disappointed by the pick itself. My husband likes the sound it makes, but says that it pulls the strings too much to really play. It will be displayed instead.

              I have never seen a pic crafted out of glass, nor have I ever heard such an amazingly, beautiful sound. My husband use to play his 12 string every day. But, as the norm. Life took off! Kids, work, bills etc. Took its toll on the time to play and sing for me. When he strummed that 12 string and that sound echoed out. His face lit up like Christmas day. Love the work and love this man of mine.
