Details

Straight from the flames of Vulcan's forge, this shimmering red and orange dichroic fused glass pendant is no mild mannered piece of jewelry! This handcrafted pendant is made of red flamed glass with a silver dichroic underlayment on a black base. The shimmer and fire is as intense as Vulcan can create. I don't make many red pendants but this has to be the quintessential heart of reds! There is a ring of silver that follows the outer edge of the piece. The rectangular pendant measures .75 inches (2cm) wide x 1.75 inches (4cm) long. The bail is a textured silver colored brass wedge shaped pinch bail that mimics the trails of smoke and fire. The opening is wide enough to accommodate a .25 diameter necklace. The thicker necklace will look best with this pendant. Some necklace options are shown in the photos above but are not included with the pendant. Necklaces can be purchased separately from this shop. #P2056

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I had some red/orange glass that had flames of color against a lighter, clear background. I wanted to capture the flame by adding a backing of silver dichroic glass to make it spark! By making the top layer slightly smaller than the dichroic layer, I was able to get the silver rim on the pendant.

Materials Used

fusible glass, dichroic glass, brass textured bail

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!

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.
