Description

The glowing glass elements in this stylish necklace are adapted from the luminous glass tesserae (mosaic tiles) that make up a splendid mosaic column by Louis Comfort Tiffany (American, 1848–1933) in The Met collection.

A concept taken from Roman and Byzantine art, glass mosaics were a natural progression from Louis C. Tiffany's work in Favrile and leaded glass. The mosaic column's iridescent tesserae shimmer from midnight blue to pale peacock, revealing his mastery of the medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant This necklace is beautiful. The gradation of the blues is stunning. I am an artist who works with glass beads so I have a very discerning eye when it comes to glass in artistic pieces. The workmanship and quality of the glass in the Tesserae Necklace is what you would expect in a custom-made piece of jewelry. I also purchased the earrings which are just as beautiful and they are not too heavy for my ears.
