  • a bit disappointed

    The glass pendant is beautiful and looks reasonably durable; despite it being bit narrower and thinner than I'd expected, I was happy with it. However, I am not sure I would have paid what I paid for it if I had to do this all over again. The cord arrived with a permanent kink from where it had been folded. The clasp is the worst clasp I have ever handled: I have never encountered as cheap and brittle a mechanism as this one. It feels very light and hollow and looks shiny and cheap. It got stuck on the open position for a bit as I moved the latch back and forth. I am upset that these pieces are marketed as being made by artisans (and priced as such!) when the quality is so inconsistent. The price should at least be adjusted to reflect the use of sub-par materials. I support giving artisans a living wage and paying a bit more for quality. I don't support charging quality prices for poor quality worksmanship.
