Clear Frit Pendant
This one of a kind pendant is made of a number of boro glass colors. The center utilizes a tan that has been combined with clear glass frit. The result is a boro glass pendant with a spider web of tan due to the action of the frit.
Frit, in terms of lampworking, are small pieces of glass. These can be purchased or made by crushing glass. Frit can range in size from glass dust to larger chunks. Sizes in the range of 1 to 2 mm work well for many applications.
The best part is that frit is applied in a most random fashion. Thus the produced creation is one of a kind.
This pendent made by Alaska Boro uses a Shepard's hook for the bail. The overall length is 47.19 mm with a maximum diameter of 30.10 mm. The bail has an ID of 6.88 mm.
