Spectacular "Space Glass" Pendants Let You Hold the Cosmos in the Palm of Your Hand

Ever wanted to know what it felt like to hold the cosmos on the end of a string? Japanese glass artist Satoshi Tomizu gives you the opportunity to experience something kind of close, with his stunning handmade art, Space Glass. His pendants are very simple, but incredibly beautiful, as Tomizu appears to capture a universe inside every delicate bauble. Each has a loop on top, allowing you to turn them into unique and eye-catching necklaces.

Tomizu began working with heat-resistant glass at the age of 28, and spent years honing his craft, which has allowed him to grow into the skilled glass worker he is today. Most of his pendants are quite tiny, with an opal in the centre to represent a planet, and flecks of gold scattered within to act as clusters of stars. From different angles the pieces take on a totally new appearance, each intricate swirl and glittery particle catching the light and adding to the rich and hypnotic recreation of a tiny galaxy on a string.
