Glass Peace is an online gallery we have created to showcase our art to the world. We carry a wide variety of glass pendants, beads, rings, cabochons, and earrings all handmade by us, Amir Shawn and Allison Hill.
Glassblowing is an amazing experience, one that can be meditative. Working with glass and fire often leads us to reflect on the world today, how circumstances and misconceptions so often lead to conflict, and how open-mindedness and understanding can help achieve peace. Creating glass art is very similar to forging peace: both are labor-intensive but result in something beautiful, and both are delicate and easily broken, and therefore must be treasured and protected. From this concept came the name “Glass Peace.”
Most of our art work is created by using a torch to manipulate a very durable, shock resistant glass called borosilicate (commonly known as Pyrex™). Using different sized rods and tubes of clear and colored glass, we create our one-of-a-kind lampwork glass pendants, earrings, and beads, then place the pieces in a computerized kiln to anneal them, which removes any stresses in the glass, ensuring a beautiful and durable piece that you will enjoy for a lifetime.
We put a great deal of love, care, time, and attention into each piece we create. The quality of our glass jewelry reflects this, and we take pride in the fact that our customers are getting something truly unique; something they love wearing and that can become a precious family heirloom.
