Product Description

Glass vitrofusion necklace from Chile, measuring approximately 5/8" wide x 3/4" tall on 17-1/2" rubber necklace. Juan Pablo Borcoski lives in Santiago with his wife and two children. He learned his craft from another artisan, and has been making jewelry since 1987. Originally he worked only in silver, but has expanded his skills to include both glass and iron. He works 10-12 hours a day, 6 days a week and employs two workers to help. His workshop is located in his mother's house, where he spends a minimum of $100 every month for his electricity, water, and phone. Juan begins each piece of jewelry by cutting, cleaning, designing and enameling the glass. These sheets are then placed upon white clay molds and fired in an electric oven at 700°C for six hours. He sells 70% of his jewelry at his shop in the local market, and 30% to buyers around the world.
