Artisan: Sundrop Jewelry
"As finding alternative energy sources becomes more urgent we seek to demonstrate the potential of harnessing the energy pouring onto the earth each day in sunlight."
Utilizing a unique glass working technique invented by artist Bretwood Higman (as a teenager in Alaska experimenting with a giant magnifying glass on the beach!), glass is melted in the intense heat at the focal point of a giant lens. Gravity and surface tension pull the glass into a lobe that cools as it falls, stretching into the distinctive "sundrop" shape.
With a strong commitment to the environment, single color drops are made with glass strips recycled from bottles or art-glass scrap, while multi-color drops are made with scrap glass kiln melted into a single, twisted spiral. The actual jewelry making process uses only the amazing potential of solar energy with a lens that can focus the sun into a point so intense it can melt not only glass but metal and even rock at an amazing 3000^ F.
Sundrop Jewelry is created by several different artists, capturing the sunlight that falls in their own backyards.
