Opaque Jet hand pressed German glass intaglio. Earring measures 1 1/4 length, to the bottom of the pearl cluster, by 1/2 inch wide.In our signature bronze metal. The necklace is retired, and features the same opaque Jet hand pressed German glass intaglio cameo on 3 strands of jet beads. I'm genuinely obsessed by the Extasia line, wearing it nearly every day. It is uniquely poised and timelessly classic in a world of'the next new look,' and always a conversation starter - with both men and women, which I find interesting.
Extasia glass cameos and intaglios are handmade in Europe by a small number of artisans using 100 year old techniques; it is a dying art. The beautiful settings were original designs by Stephanie Freydont (now deceased) and her design team. The pieces are set and assembled in their California studio. Note: If you have watched the show Deadwood (dark, explicit, Shakespearian, amazing), there is a LOT of Extasia jewelry.At that time, I Googled the show a lot trying to find out who did the jewelry, but no luck. I became obsessed with cameos. I stumbled upon Extasia at a museum shop, and it was love at first sight. It wasn't until recently, on their Facebook page, that I found out that Extasia was responsible for the jewelry I'd been swooning over. I have quite a few pieces listed, and an happy to consider offers for multiple pieces. Thanks for looking, please ask questions.
