Ganesha Pendant (Gold-in-Glass)
This necklace is designed and crafted by the Auroville artist Birgitta Volz. Every single piece of jewelry is made by hand, thus creating their unique charm. The necklace is crafted with 24k gold leaves fused in between glass making it an elegant yet everyday piece of jewelry.
Please Note: Since each piece is 100% handmade, they can vary from the photograph. This pendant does not come with the chain. If you would like to buy the chain separately, please click here.

- Diameter: Small - 3 cm | Big - 4 cm
How the jewelry is crafted:
Pure gold/silver leaves (24 karats) are fused in between glass forms in a vacuum process, with the same manufacturing technique used on the Matrimandir’s golden tiles. After the fusing, every piece is ground and heated again to create its final shape. The intricate Ganesha is added on the gold-in-glass pendant by sandblasting the upper surface.
How to care for your Gold-in-Glass Jewelry:
Under normal circumstances, the jewelry is solid and the gold/silver is preserved in glass forever in perfect condition. Please avoid dropping them on a hard surface. Most of our fittings are made from hypoallergenic (nickel-free) alloys and are suitable for people with a sensitivity to nickel. They have real gold or silver plating, which is not permanent in the tropical climate.
To clean the fittings, use a brass or silver polish. The chains are composed of many metal wires inside of a skin-friendly nylon coating. Never fold the wire chains! Roll wires gently circularly for storing or keep them in their natural shape.
