1″x 1″, glass
I’ve always been torn about the idea of finding silver linings. It can help to find some small joy or comfort in what’s otherwise awful, but it also seems like a way to dismiss reality. Maybe tarnished silver linings are a bit more balanced. There have certainly been small joys in the time we’ve been forced to spend at home as a family because of coronavirus. Extra snuggles, time-consuming baking projects, watching the garden grow and sitting in the hammock. Maybe there’s a silver lining to George Floyd’s murder in the increased awareness of and response to pervasive racism, but the many deaths that it took to get here have certainly tarnished that silver. This pendant is made from silver-backed glass, giving it a silver lining, and the bezel is real silver, which will tarnish over time. The silver is imperfect, and each piece of glass is a different height, making it much less uniform than it looks in the photo.
