This classic Twistie charm is a 2nd design product, meaning it was revived into a new product from an existing product. Exclusive to the Glass Academy and designed by Co-Owner, Michelle Plucinsky, it's a great charm to a necklace, back pack or lamp pull, or any other creative idea that you can come up with!
The process of making the Twistie Charm dates back to the 1200's in Italy. Color strips of glass are layered and designed in certain patterns, then coated with clear glass making a sort of solid stick. When heated to 2100 degrees, the glass can then be stretched, over 40 feet long, to narrow the glass size down to that of a pencil
Cutting to the proper length, the glass is then put into a kiln to soften the sharp edges and create the flat side to adhere the hook.
Each Twistie Charm comes with a key chain fob and a small chain.
