Express Yourself---Wear Art!!

Created using an advanced fusing technique, this dichroic fused glass pendant underwent multiple firings to create what you see here. This is the first of a new series of pendants coming to my shop. Hand engraving on a gorgeous dichroic glass background make a unique piece of artwork.

Created by layering colors of dichroic glass and hand etching, this show stopper fused glass pendant will create a conversation piece for your neckline. The dichoric glass in this pendant is left exposed to create a gorgeous tapestry of color.

Your pendant will arrive ready to wear with a 18" complimentary satin neck cord or silver plated chain (not pictured). You can feel confident giving this as a gift as is; or upgrade to a modern silver plated neck wire found in my Artfire shop. A gift of Dichroic glass will forever be treasured as that one-of-a-kind creation that no one else will ever be able to duplicate.

All pieces are created in my home studio. It is difficult to capture the true beauty of Dichroic Glass in photos. Trust me, if you think it looks beautiful here, you will be thrilled when you see it in person.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

WHAT IS DICHORIC GLASS

Dichroic glass is one of the most amazing materials being used by glass artists today. It was first developed for the space industry in the early 1960's. Today, it is specially created by only a small number of glass manufacturers for use by artists and other specialties.

"Dichroic" is defined in the dictionary as, "The property of a surface to reflect light of one color and transmit light of another color." Di- is Greek for two and -chroic is Greek for color, thus when combined we have Dichroic or two colors. Transmitted color is what you see when you look through a clear piece of Dichroic glass. Reflected color is the color you see when you hold the same glass in front of you and view it from different angles.

In the manufacturing process, quartz crystal and metallic oxides are vaporized with an electron beam in an airless vacuum chamber and the vapor then floats upward and condenses on the surface of the glass in the form of a crystalline structure. Dichroic glass sheets may have as many as thirty layers of these materials, yet the thickness of the total coating is only about 35 millionths of an inch.

Dichroic glass comes with either a black base or a clear base. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns that can be combined to create unusual, colorful, and incredibly beautiful jewelry, tile, and decorative items for your home.

A gift of Dichroic glass will forever be treasured as that one-of-a-kind creation that no one else will ever be able to duplicate.

More Info

How I Make It

Many different sizes, shapes, and patterns of compatible Dichroic glass are cut and stacked into unique designs and then fired in the kiln. A maximum of three layers can be fused on this first firing. After that, only one layer can be added before firing again. Finally, once I am satisfied with the piece I have created, I add a layer of clear glass to the top of the design. During the fusing process, the glass melts together and takes on a whole new character as the colors and patterns blend together into a one-of-a-kind creation. With The Picasso Technique (Abstract Collection) that I use on some of my pendants, the dichroic glass does not have clear glass cap.

After the fusing process is completed, the piece is cold worked and shaped with saws and grinders. The piece is then fire-polished in the kiln. If desired, on some of my pendants a multi-layer enamel design can be applied to the top of the piece and then fired to become a permanent layer within the piece that will not chip or rub off, it becomes part of the glass.
