Yes, you read that correctly…jewelry made out of Pyrex! Mom and I were strolling through the Sausalito Art Festival over Labor Day Weekend (worth the visit if you’ve never attended — very well curated), and we came across a booth with the sign, “Keep Calm, It’s Pyrex!” Ok, that got our attention. So did this necklace:
Pretty interesting, right? Not only are the glass baubles really intriguing, but so is the chain, with it’s unique links. I was worried about having glass pendants that hang so low as they could possibly get knocked on a table or something when sitting down, but Melissa told us that she has a life-long guarantee on her work. So if something happens to break, she’ll replace it. Now that’s something!
Melissa Schmidt is a St. Louis based jeweler. She is self-taught with her glass blowing and takes inspiration from antique glass buttons. I checked out her Etsy shop and thought I’d share some more images of her work.
I’m glad mom got the long necklace in the first photo. Can’t wait to see how she styles it!

That was great — you did a great job. I love all the things you said. Thank you so much!
It was fun discovering your line at the festival!
I love my unique, pyrex glass necklace 🙂 Fun to wear!! XX
And since it’s clear, it can go with anything!
Love these necklaces! Am checking out her site now 🙂
They are definitely a conversation piece, Linda!
I think so too!
Love the pyrex and glass blown jewelry, especially the bubble necklace. Venice also has some shops that have glass blown jewelry, checkout the work of designers Marina e Susanna Sent, which is quite similar.
Thanks for sharing.
Keep it Stylish!
Thanks for the comment, Shilpa! Yes, Venice is certainly famous for all things glass — from bowls to jewelry and more! I remember seeing a glass blowing demonstration there that was really cool.
Stunning! I love seeing glass used so creatively.
Well you are certainly a glass expert, Rose! Thanks for the comment.
