Most of our Glass Jewelry is made with a layer of dichroic glass. Dichroic glass is so gorgeous in Fused Glass Pendants and is very unusual. Other people will notice your stunning Glass Pendant and ask you where you got it.
Dichroic glass is a fun and gorgeous type of glass to incorporate into our Fused Glass Jewelry. When a Fused Glass Pendant has dichroic glass in it, the glass pendant draws so much attention from other people. The dichroic glass in the glass pendant just pops out with its sparkly sheen.
What makes dichroic glass so unique is that it transmits one color and reflects a different color according to how you hold it up to the light. For example, if you hold a piece of dichroic glass up to the light, you will see one color. If you take this same piece and put the light behind you, you will see another color. Sometimes you'll even see more colors as you move the dichroic glass around. Depending on the color of clothing you are wearing, Fused Glass Jewelry with dichroic glass in it sometimes changes colors. You have to have a piece in your hand to actually believe it.

I buy dichroic glass in many colors, patterns and textures. Most of the time I will score and cut a piece of dichroic glass and then a piece of clear glass. The clear glass is placed on top of the dichroic glass to make it really sparkle. The two layers are fused in our kiln. Sometimes the Fused Glass Pendant needs to be ground on the edges for a crisper, more even edge; then it needs to be fire polished to shine the areas that were ground. A bail is glued onto the back of the Fused Glass Pendant and then it is finished!
