What are these pendants made out of?
They are made out of Borosilicate glass. Learn more about Borosilicate glass in our article here. It is some of the strongest glass there is.
What kind of opals do you use?
We use Gilson opals in our pendants. This is the only type of opal that can be encased in glass.
Can you make me a custom pendant?
No. We wish we could. Here’s the problem: we can’t 100% predict how a pendant will turn out. If we had to try more than once to create the pendant; it would make it a loss for us.
How long do these take to make?
Pendants typically take between 15 minutes and an hour to create depending on the style. Learn more about our process here.
Why do the costs vary so much?
Certain materials used cost us more. And certain techniques take more time. UV glass costs more than colored glass and colored glass costs more than clear glass. Opals take more time, gas, and risk. Implosions never come out the same and some look better than others. This all affects the price.
How can I contact you?
Our contact details can be found here. Please leave us a message. We are very busy and will return your message as soon as we can.
Why does it take you so long to receive and package an order?
Unfortunately, we have other things to do. Sometimes we get an order out the day after it was placed but sometimes it takes a few days.
Why are you called GyroGlass? I thought a Gyro was just a really tastey menu item.
The term Gyro is actually an adjective for having to do with rotation. The word Gyro is often used to describe various Greek dishes that have been slowly rotated over a flame to be cooked evenly to perfection. Borosilicate glass is also formed by rotating a glass rod over a flame(this flame can be up to 5,000 degree’s farenheight). The heat and rotation combined turn the glass into a molten glass ball which can then either be blown into a hallow piece, shaped into something else, or kept as a ball to make a marble!
