Art glass pendant necklace, 'Cerulean Cross' (Thailand)

Thai artisan Nilawan fuses colored glass onto a diamond-shaped clear glass square to create this pendant necklace. Inspired by the ceramic tile artwork at the temple of the Grand Palace in Bangkok, the artisan designs the pendant with squares of cerulean blue glass forming a symmetrical cross with a multi-colored center of orange, white, red, and yellow glass layered on top of each other. The pendant hangs from a dark brown sueded polyester cord with a sliding knot to adjust the length.
