A STORY BEHIND EACH PIECE

The ancient glass in this unique jewelry collection began life as a household vase, water jug, or temple vessel.

It belonged to someone - a real, living, breathing human being - who was alive 2000 years ago at the time of the Jesus Christ. It was used in daily life and perhaps even treasured. There is a genuine history and a unique story behind each piece - a tie to one of the most significant time in the history of mankind. 

Intact vases, jugs, and other vessels are occasionally excavated and displayed in museums or auctioned to antiquities collectors.  More commonly, though, the glass is discovered in broken shards and fragments. Having rested undisturbed for centuries, these fragments still bear the marks of their former lives and they have also been transformed by the very earth in which they have slumbered. 

If you have a yearning to connect intimately with this ancient time, our Roman Glass Jewelry has been reborn as a necklace, pendant or earring to provide you with a small, deeply personal keepsake of 2000-year-old history.
