Today glass jewelry may be popular among craft
galleries, craft shops, in art jewelry or craft jewelry and craft artists. Fine jewelry is as always
popular in sterling silver and solid gold. Piro mixes the two and
creates his own design style. On this page there are a few pieces that
are in sterling silver and 14 karat gold with pearls and gem stones and
glass in each design piece. The glass is cut by the jewelry artist.
The art jewelry designs by Piro with glass have a special unique mix
of facet cut semi precious and facet cut precious stones where one can see
tourmaline, and small
diamonds with glass. This is
something of a unique feature in Piro art jewelry as the cut glass is often
mixed with these gem stones. The cut glass in Piro art jewelry creates
a nice effect that casts its own color light onto the sterling silver or
gold part of the piece. When looking at any Piro pendants, rings,
earrings, or bracelets that have the cut glass, the metal part may have a
color tint when put under light because of the glass above it.
Note how green light from the green glass appears on
the sterling silver metal (near top of the ring right under the green glass top.
In this cyber ring green light is on the sterling silver and gold from the green glass top.
In this stack ring, the blue glass casts blue light onto the sterling silver (lower right corner of ring).
Many of the jewelry artist Piro jewelry designs are made in sterling
silver and 14 karat gold, rather than in just sterling silver or 14 karat
gold. It's an important part of Piro designer jewelry that all pieces
shown on our website are artist's original handwork. It is possible to
make casting designs in only sterling silver or only in gold to have them
repeated without any jewelry artist handwork. But, if you have a
design piece that is in both, sterling silver and in 14 karat gold together,
you know it is the designer jewelry artist original handmade handwork. In Piro
designer jewelry, this is what is a very important point. Artist
original handwork? Yes.
