A STORY BEHIND EACH PIECE

The glass piece in this unique cross began life as part of a household vase, water jug, or temple vessel. It belonged to someone alive at the time of the Savior. It was used in daily life and perhaps even treasured. There is genuine history and a unique story behind each piece.

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. 

Those lucky enough to own a piece of precious Roman Glass jewelry that has been reborn as a necklace, pendant, earring, or ring are literally wearing a small piece of 2000-year-old history.
