Roessler Glass Bead Fibula Pin
Made by Joyce Roessler of Massachusetts. The fibula incorporates furnace blown glass made by the artist.
This is vintage work by the artist and is limited to stock on hand.
A fibula is a pin style that is based on ancient Roman toga closures. One piece of metal makes the body of the pin and then becomes the clasp. It is the first safety pin!
