2000-YEAR-OLD EXCAVATED GLASS
The ancient glass in this unique jewelry collection began life as a household vase, water jug, or temple vessel.
These items belonged to someone - a real, living, breathing human being - who was alive 2000 years ago at the time of the Jesus Christ. They were 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 times and holiest places 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 that then carefully cataloged, cleaned, and reborn as incredibly unique jewelry.
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.
Ancient coins (mites) are also unearthed and given new life as "widow's mite" pieces in our collection.
