Canada is a vast country with six time zones. So I was amazed to learn that business partners, Kim Reid and Tyler Hayes are from this end of the country and yet both now make the most awesome glass pendants on Vancouver Island on the west coast.

I met Kim last year when she came all the way back to Halifax to showcase Mystic Glass Creations at a local craft show. I was so impressed with their work, I bought a star fish pendant (above) for myself. I just hung it on a silver chain. I refrained from doing anything else because I did not want to detract from this lovely focal.

The detail in their work is breathtaking. The photographs here do not do their work justice. Shown below are their line of Ocean Scene pendants. How did they do it? "Ocean Scene pendants are created by melting clear and colored glass together in a torch. When the colored glass is melted onto the clear glass a drawing technique is done to form the ocean scene. Silver shaving is used to create the shimmering stars in the night sky." It's like drawing with glass!

With their mystic pendant line, pure gold or silver is vaporized and then trapped in the glass. Silver vapor apparently result in a white or blue tone mist while the gold ends up as a pinkish one.

Their Ocean Floor pendants are created with colored crushed glass.

Their sea creatures collection is also delightful.

Their skill is remarkable. For their lillies pendants, "Coloured glass is stretched out to the diameter of a pencil lead. It is then applied to a clear blown out tube and melted down to create the imploded lillies."

One of their most outstanding lines are the tidal pool pendants. You can see the elements in 3D. Believe me, these are truly amazing pieces.
