What: Mark Hamilton Solstice Glass Jewelry
Why: Blame my dad for playing a lot of Cat Stevens and Grateful Dead while I was growing up, because I love anything that can be described as “trippy”. Mark Hamilton’s custom made hand blown glass jewelry fits the description. What sets Solstice Glass apart from the rest of the junk normally found in this category, is the beautiful craftsmanship and artistry Mark clearly put into each of his pieces. The Lampwork Glass Magnifier Pendants are truly exquisite, and the “Universe” pendant actually has small .999% pure silver droplets trapped inside to look like stars and planets.
It reminds me of the time my dad took me to the planetarium for my first experience of Pink Floyd combined with swirling stars and solar systems. Trippy. For a dressier piece, Mark has teamed up with an extremely talented silversmith and metalworker to create a one-of-a-kind Sterling Silver & Lampwork Glass Jewelry Collection. All lampwork glass pendants come with a free black satin cord, which is really all you need when wearing something so unique. Peace and Love.
