Designer Jewelry by Robyn Tabayoyon
Gifted and skilled in techniques of glass jewelry design, Canadian-born
artist Robyn Tabayoyon creates glass pendants hand-crafted with
Reminiscent of vivid Venetian "millefiore" glass,
Robyn's, Fireye glass jewelry designs reflect originality and
sophistication. Her Fireye pendants combined with silver, gold,
and precious stone beads come in stunning shades, and are worn
by fashionable women worldwide.
When you have made your selection of any of Robyn's Fireye glass
jewelry designs please be advised that due to the nature of
glass, an exact duplicate of her featured work would be an impossibility:
however she would be able to produce a Fireye glass jewelry piece
very close in pattern, color, and materials. This enhances the
"one of a kind" uniqueness of your Fireye purchase

I work in "Borosilicate" glass, otherwise known as Hot or
Hard Glass. Also known as Pyrex or corning ware. Those are the names
of company's in the USA that produce Borosilicate glass.
Borosilicate glass melts at a very high temperature and cools quickly;
it can take shock like hot or cold very well, and in turn is considered
I am able to incorporate precious metals like pure gold and silver
into the clear glass through a technique called fuming. I also have
a wide variety of colors that come in hard rod form that I melt and
work with almost like a color pencil.
I first started Borosilicate glass blowing when I was twenty-two in
Eugene, Oregon, and went on my own from there and have been practicing
this art for just over 5 years.
I recently worked at Borosilicate Scientific Glass Blowing Laboratories
in Richmond California for some time, and was able to brush up on
my precision and expand my techniques and skills.
I have a great love of the Ocean and sometimes I see my Fireye glass
jewelry work as something that resembles under water life, like star
fish and sea anemones.
