Details

This organic, free-form dichroic glass pendant measures about 1.75 inches long and 1.25 inches wide (4.5 x 3.2cm).

Innocent looking against a white background, this piece will become a glowing changeling when worn against any colored backdrop. Organic chunks with pinks and greens emerge when worn against a colored background, including skin. The glass tends toward green but will pick up on the colors you are wearing.

This piece is hung from an argentium sterling silver pinch bail that will allow the pendant to swing. Argentium sterling silver is a new silver alloy that resists tarnish and is beloved in the jewelry world. A quality bail was selected for this unique pendant.

"Intriguing" describes this dichroic pendant well. It will draw attention as the color shifts and the pendant rocks on it's chain. A silver chain is recommended, but not included, as an elegant touch for this piece, but it will also gain a modern look with a short, black leather cord. (Black leather cords are available in the shop.) This is for the pendant only, necklaces are not included. This is a beautiful piece of one-of-a-kind, wearable art. P1133

More Info

What is dichroic glass? Dichroic glass was first developed by NASA as part of their satellite mirror systems. The 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. Dichroic glass is very coveted by glass jewelry artisans.

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

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 often commented that the dichroic glass jewelry has become a favorite.
