My mum brought me back a glass pendant from Paris years ago, and always regretted not getting one herself. What is the name for this kind of pendant so I can try and find one for her?

She bought the pendant from a stall in La Defence, but given this was in 1998 I'm not counting on the stall still being there - I'm off to Paris next month so if it's a popular French style, this would be good to know.
I don't have it to hand to photograph, but the pendant was made from glass into which various coloured pigments were injected to make a kind of hexagonal design that was reminiscent of flowers. It looked kind of like those tubes of patterned Fimo
which you slice pieces off to make flat-sided patterned shapes.
I've tried searching on Etsy for 'injected glass' to no avail, so perhaps there's a name for this technique I don't know? I would love to be able to find one of these for her Christmas present!
