Stop Right There
Diane DiRaimo's unique necklace is sure to stop traffic. After all, it did that all day and night in its former life. Their red, yellow, and blue-green "gems" are made from real New York City glass traffic light lenses, which were replaced in the 1960s. She breaks them into small pieces, tumbles them in a rock polisher, and turns the resulting jewel-like glass pebbles into brightly colored, slightly translucent pendants. After she adds an 18" chain and a pretty chain extension made of the same colored glass, the result is a necklace that"s fresh and original, yet mysteriously familiar in that "Where have I seen that before?" way. A complement to lots of different looks, it's a great conversation starterónot, despite its former job, a stopper. Handmade in New York City.
