Handmade Sterling Silver Blue Prosthetic Glass Eye Pendant, made by Maggie of freedomjewelryusa.
This piece shown has been sold and orders can be taken. Please message your eye color needed, I will be right with you for discussion.
Measures 1.50″ vertical X 1.25″ horizontal with a wearable weight of 14.3 grams with substantial bail to take most size chains or cord.
I hand cut the eye and make the setting from using the lost wax jewelry technique. Marked with my maker’s mark FREEDOM and Sterling stamped on back. Eye follows movement.
Each eye is a small work of art in the blown glass featured in each eye I set. Photos are designed to show actual colors, these do seem to change with the light, great depth to create excellent character.
History on these glass eye originates from Lauscha, a town in the district of Sonneberg, in Thuringia, Germany. They are archaeological and found recently, buried for 120 years!
Produced from a doll manufacturing company, around 1890; specializing in glass marbles, porcelain dolls and prosthetic glass eyes; these were produced before and during the war, as a replacement for the human eye, very interesting, historical and I feel privileged to set these.
