Art glass pendant necklace, 'Periwinkle Treat' (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 four squares of blue glass surrounding a multi-colored center of orange, yellow, and white 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.
