O3M or "Out of our Minds" is a duo of local artists specializing in hand crafted fused glass jewelry and home goods right here in Northern Virginia. Our relationship with them has spanned many years.
Their jewelry designs involve combining layers of iridized, opaque, transparent and dichroic glass. They then cut, kiln-fire, shape and polish each piece into a one-of-a-kind treasure. A groove is ground into the edge of the glass piece in order to securely wrap it with heavy gauge sterling silver or 14K gold-filled wire, with one end of the wire formed into a bail with spiral accent. The range of distinct color combinations they can achieve is astounding, with the fiery depth of opals.

- Chain is 3mm round mesh in silver or gold plate to coordinate with the wire wrapping
