Most of the pendants from the “Space Glass” series have won international awards (understandably).

They make us want to dive inside.

The pendants have a loop attached so, just like the little alien in Men In Black, you can wear a whole galaxy round your neck.

Each pendant is made by hand and no two “Space Glass” pieces are alike.

Viewed from different angles, the pendants sparkle and seem to move in the light.
