Organic Dichroic Cobalt Blue Multi-Layered Brooch with Floating Bits

Quantity: 1 available
Product Description
This fascinating dichroic glass brooch is a deep metallic cobalt blue on a black background. There are bits of tiny colored dichroic pieces that float in a cap of clear glass. There are hints of mauve, plum and teal. The depth of all the many layers is wonderful when held at different angles to the light. The brooch measures 1.5 inches at the widest and 2.25 inches in length (2.8 cm x 5.7 cm) and has a flowing shape.

There is a pin back attached to the back of the cabochon and it hangs vertically.

This brooch is a bit heavy and should be pinned on heavy or thick fabric for good support. It would look lovely on a sweater or blazer.
Inspiration/Story Behind This Product
This piece was fired three times. Each time, another layer of embellishment was added. This resulted in the wonderful depth of this brooch.
Materials Used
dichroic glass and pin clasp
More Info
What is dichroic glass? Dichroic glass was first developed by NASA as part of their satellite mirror systems. The extremely thin dichroic coating must be applied to the sheet glass in very controlled environments.

Di-chroic means two colors and this glass reflects/transmits different colors depending on the angle of light. When it is worn with different colors, it appears to pick up and reflect some of those colors so it really enhances the total look. I call this the "mood" of the glass. Because of it's ability to color-shift, photographing the jewelry is difficult. Dichroic glass is very coveted by glass jewelry artisans.

All Umeboshi jewelry is handmade by the artist at Dark Hollow Studio in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. Each piece is carefully fired and annealed in a digital kiln for a perfect results! This piece is has it's own inspiration and you should not see another one just like this.

I wear my handmade jewelry almost every day. People have often stopped me to look at the dichroic glass and ask or comment about it. Seeing the jewelry being worn and catching the light has been my best advertisement. My customers have commented that the dichroic glass jewelry has been the mainstay of their wardrobe accessories.
